Boil Water Notice


Boil Water Notification

Due to repair on a main distribution line scheduled today, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our public water system Bell-Milam-Falls WSC, PWS ID 0140007, to notify customers to boil their water prior to consumption after service is restored from scheduled repairThis will affect customers north of the Little River (Rogers and Buckholts areas) up to Falls RD outside Wilson area.  A map of the service area affected is online at www.bellmilamfallswsc.com.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and for making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. 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. 

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption.  The rescind notice will be issued in the same manner as this Boil Water Notice. 

If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Robert Jekel at 1-800-826-4322.

If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call 512-239-4691.
