An East Texas community has been placed under a boil order following a water main break.
On Wednesday the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a boil order for the Eastern Cass Water Supply Corporation.
Water customers affected by this break are located NW of intersection of County Roads 4231 and 4227, including County Roads 4232 & 4233.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use.
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. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Mitchell McCasland at (903)796-2393. If a customer wishes to contact the TCEQ, they may call (512)239-4691.
