ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (News Release) - On Monday, October 3, 2016, the City of Lufkin, who is the wholesale water provider to the Angelina County Fresh Water Supply District #1 (the District), had a 6" water main break resulting in low water pressures.
Due to the District's wholesale water provider's water main break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required Angelina County Fresh Water Supply District No. 1 (PWS ID Number 0030102) to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.
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 sources.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the Angelina County Fresh Water Supply District No. 1 water system officials will notify customers when water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
If you have questions regarding this matter you may contact Chris Key, Operations Division Manager at (936) 632-7795 or (877) 420-9075.
