SAN AUGUSTINE, Texas (KTRE) - The San Augustine Rural Water System has issued a boil water notice for its customers Thursday.

All customers are to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.
