The City of Breckenridge’s Public Works Director has declared a Boil Water Notice effective Sunday, November 28, 2021, for several blocks in the south-central portion of the city.

The areas affected include:

  • The 100 blocks  of East Cottage, East Power, West Power, East Parrish, East Valley, and East Aberdeen,
  • the 100 – 200 blocks of West Cottage,
  • and, the 700 – 1000 blocks of South Rose Avenue, South Breckenridge Avenue and South Cutting Street.

Due conditions in the water system which have occurred (waterline break), 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.
