Due to a main line break on FM 226 North of FM 2259, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, Woden Water Supply Corporation, to notify customers North of FM 2259 on FM 226 all the way to Oakridge of the need to boil their water prior to consumption until further notice.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
