Boil Water Notice February 17, 2021 - Specific Areas of City

boil water  notice

The City of Marble Falls is asking customers in the Mormon Mill road area, including Faith Academy and Hamilton Creek (CR342C) and from Colt Circle/US Hwy. 281 northwest to PEC to boil their water prior to using it for drinking or cooking, until further notice.   The boil water notice is required because water pressure in portions of the water distribution system dropped below minimum standards.

This boil water notice is currently in specific areas and is a precautionary measure to ensure the health and safety or our customers.  

 Official Notice Language

Due to a drop in water pressure below minimum standards, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Marble Falls to notify all affected customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing 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 destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for 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 City of Marble Falls will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the City of Marble Falls will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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.
