The City of Breckenridge’s Public Works Director issued a new Boil Water Notice and rescinded two others, effective Saturday, March 28.

Boil Water Notice

The new Boil Water Notice is for all of South Cutting, 100 blocks of East Power Street, East Cottage Street, East Parrish Street, East Valley Street and East Aberdeen Street.

Due to conditions in the water system which have occurred (water line breaks), the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City to notify all customers within the affected area to boil their water prior to consumption. To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

The Boil Water Notice will be in effect for a minimum of 48 hours. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will notify each customer directly in the affected area.

For more information, call the City Offices at 254-559-8287 or the Water Office at 254-559-7249.

Boil Water Rescind Notices

The City of Breckenridge has rescinded two of three Boil Water Notices issued this week. The rescinded notice, effective March 28, are for:

  • All Mistletoe, Sycamore, Cypress, Renee, Glenwood Circle, Hunters Glenn, Robins Nest, North Harding,
    and Scenic Drive, which was issued on March 24,
  • All of 1200 West Walker Street and 1200 West Williams, 100-400 South Pecan, 1100 and 1200 blocks of
    West Wheeler and West Hullum, which was issued on March 24.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Breckenridge to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform water customers that due to the interruption in service, water from the  system needed to be boiled prior to consumption.

The City took the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results indicating that the water no longer requires boiling.

For more information, call the City Offices at 254-559-8287 or the Water Office at 254-559-7249.
