Elkhart issues Boil Water notice

ELKHART, May 23, 2013--Due to a water main line break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the water system City of Elkhart PWS id 0010005  to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.

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, residents may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify the public that the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Gregg Lewis at 903-764-5657 or 903-805-7053.
