The City of Weimar is issuing a boil water notice now. Customers are to boil any water prior to consumption.
Due to prolonged freezing temperatures and water capacity not meeting demand and water leaks, the water system pressures have fallen below 20 p s i. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires that the city put out public notice to customers to boil their water prior to consumption, such as washing hands & face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.
Officials add that, children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions. To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the city will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will also issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice. Please share this information.
