BEEVILLE, TEXAS — The City of Beeville Public Water System has issued a water-boil notice to customers. This is the city's second water boil in less than a month.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Beeville Public Water System, to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). The water currently exceeds the maximum contaminant level for E. coli bacteria.

Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems particularly are vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers are advised to follow these instructions to ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes. Drinking water and water for cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use.

Tap water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that water is safe for drinking.

Please 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).

You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Joe Montez at 361-358-4641 ext. 202.
