City of Breckenridge issues Boil Water Notice for area in east part of town

The City of Breckenridge’s Public Works Director has declared a Boil Water Notice effective Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022, for several blocks in the eastern portion of the city.

The area affected is from Connell Street to Elliott Street and from North and South Dubois to the east end of the system.

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.
