Boil Water Notice Rescinded

Boil Water Rescind Notice

On 12-13-15, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required our public water system Salem Elm Ridge WSC, PWS ID 1660013 to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that due to an issue with Central Texas WSC, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.

Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of 12-16-15.

If you have questions, contact Robert Jekel at 697-4016.

If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call 512-239-4691.

As the incredible results of water treatment became more apparent, the U.S. Public Health Service set standards for water purity, standards that have been revised over the years, as new contaminants have been identified. Modern water systems carefully monitor water throughout the treatment process for traces of chemical pollutants and microbes; they have sophisticated computerized devices capable of detecting contaminants in the parts per trillion.
