On February 17, the City of Greenville Public Works System ID # 1160004 issued a Boil Water Notice (BWN). This update informs citizens that the City expects to continue this BWN until at least Tuesday, February 23, 2021. Due to past rolling power outages, the system was compromised and did not meet the water quality that TCEQ requires. To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled before drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for consumption.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City of Greenville Public Works’ after-hours number (903) 457-2948.
