Boil Water Rescind Notice
On 4-13-17, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required our public water system Bell-Milam-Falls WSC, PWS ID 0140007 to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that due to a repair in the Wilson area, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.
Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of 4-18-17.
If you have questions, contact Robert Jekel at 254-697-4016.
If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call 512-239-4691.
