Boil warning notice issued for Gonzales County


This story has been updated to reflect that the boil water notice only applies to Gonzales County Water Supply Corp.

Gonzales County has issued a boil water notice due to loss of pressure for Gonzales County Water Supply Corp. customers, according to a Facebook post from Gonzales County Judge Patrick C. Davis.

Here is that post:

"Due to loss of system pressure the Texas Commission on Environment Quality has required GCWSC, a public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption. 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.
In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottle water or
obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
Please share this information will all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly.
If you have any questions, you may contact Barry Miller, General Manager or email"
