Etoile issues boil water notice for Branch Hollow subdivision

ETOILE, TX (KTRE) - Etoile Water Supply has issued a boil water notice for customers that live in the Branch Hollow Subdivision.

Customers are asked to boil their water prior to consumption.

Water supply officials stated there was a line break on Wednesday that caused Etoile Water Supply PWS ID 1740011 to issue the notice.

Customers should boil water prior to use, to ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, if they plan to use water for drinking, cooking, and making ice.

The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, officials said you may purchase bottled water.

Water supply officials said they will notify customers when it is no longer necessary to boil the water, and when the water is safe for consumption.
