Due to conditions which have occurred recently in Texas Landing Utilities/PWS#1870151, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.
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.

If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Karen Mann or office personnel at 936-646-6261.
