December 29, 2015 - (Update) January 6, 2016 - It is no longer necessary for the customers on McClelland water in the Dreka community that were without water on 12/28/15 and 12/29/15 to boil their water.
Due to a water main break, the TCEQ has required our water system McClelland water to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.
This is for customers that were without water on 12-28-2015 and 12-29-2015 in the Dreka community on FM 2427.
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 some 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 any questions concerning this matter, you may contact the water office at 936-590-9177 or Vince Di Verdi at 936-591-1205.
