The Angelina County Fresh Water Supply District #1 has experienced a break in the water main that supplies water to the Cedar Grove Community.

Crews are working to repair thewater main, which has interrupted service to the entire water system.

All customers in the Cedar Grove Community are asked by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to boil their water, prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption.  The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.  In lieu of boiling, bottled water may be used.

The water main is expected to be repaired by noon today.
