Boil water notice issued for Shirley Creek Estates

ETOILE, TX (KTRE) - As a result of a service line break on Sept. 7, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) ordered the Etoile Water Supply to notify customers in Shirley Creek Estates of the need to boil their water.

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 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.

If you have questions in regard to this matter, you may contact Charlie Luse at (936) 854-2215.
