Due to a loss of pressure on Wednesday, March 29, 2023, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the water system, PWS 2150007, Stephens Regional Special Utility District, to issue a Boil Water Notice for the SRSUD water customers on the north side of U.S. Highway 180 East, one half-mile east and west of State Highway 67 intersection, and customers on State Highway 67, extending north, including all adjacent county and farm to market roads, excluding FM 717.

The SRSUD customers in the designated area need to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). Children, seniors, and person with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public is asked to share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses), by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.

For more information, contact the Stephens Regional SUD office at 254-559-6180 during business hours or Kelvin Nickell, water treatment plant operator, at 254-488-2333.
