Updated Boil Water Notice - February 19, 2021

Boil Water Map 021921 UPDATED

Please be advised that a boil water notice has been issued for parts of the City. The affected area map has been updated.

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.

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 any questions concerning this matter, you may contact the City of Marble Falls at 830-693-3615.
