Due to a loss in water pressure on November 11, 2020, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Lone Star (PWS 1720005) public water system to notify all customers to boil their water before consumption, such as washing hands/face, brushing your teeth, drinking, etc. Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.
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.
Instead of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that it is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will state to customers to rescind the boil water notice like this notice.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Shane Townson at 903-656-2311
