PRESS RELEASE — Due to low distribution water pressures (<20psi) caused by power outage, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required North Orange Water & Sewer, LLC to notify all customers, individuals, or employees that this business has implemented a boil water notice. All water provided by this business shall be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). Children, seniors, and persons 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 drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil for two minutes.
In lieu of boiling, all customers, individuals, or employees may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or for human consumption purposes.
When it is no longer necessary to boil water, NOWS officials of this business will notify customers, individuals or employees that the water is safe for drinking or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, NOWS officials will issue a notice to customers, individuals, or employees of this business that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
Please share this information with all other people who drink this water, especially those who may or may not have received this notice directly. You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distribute copies by hand or mail.
