The City of Sundown issued a boil water notice Monday afternoon.
According to a press release from the city, due to conditions that have occurred recently in the water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.
For the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigorous boil and 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 water, water system officials will send out another notice.
