Due to a water main break at Holland Road and Muelhause Street on September 12, 2014, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, City of Belton PWS No. TX140002, to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption. The affected area contained within region of the City east of Interstate 35 to Shady Lane and north of Loop 121 to Central Ave.
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 questions concerning this matter, you may contact City of Belton Public Works Department at (254) 933-5823 or the City of Belton Public Information Officer at (254) 254-5889.
