SRSUD issues Boil Water Notice for most rural water customers

Due to a loss of pressure as a result of a power outage that occurred at approximately 1 a.m. on Jan. 28, 2024, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the Stephens Regional Special Utility District water system, PWS 2150007, to notify its customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.).

The Boil Water Notice is for all customers of the Stephens Regional Special Utility District with the exception of customers fed by line on and off of us highway 183 north including the Crystal Falls, Woodson areas, and Village Inn, and Tanglewood areas; customers in those specified areas are not under the notice.

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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

SRSUD asks its customers to share information about the Boil Water Notice with anyone who drinks the water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this 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 SRSUD office at 254-559-6180 during business hours or Kelvin Nickell, water treatment plant operator, at 254-488-2333.
