Boil Water Rescind Notice
On FEBRUARY 22, 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required the CITY OF EASTLAND to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that due to the presence of contaminants or an interruption in service, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.
Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of 1 PM on FEBRUARY 23, 2018.
If you have questions, contact Ron Duncan, Eastland City Manager at 254-629-8321.
PUBLIC BOIL WATER NOTICE
February 22, 2018
Due to a loss of system water pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the CITY OF EASTLAND to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption. A return of water pressure does not rescind this notice. This notice is in effect immediately and will remain in effect until lifted by the City of Eastland.
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.
Food service locations are required by law to follow the Texas Department of State Health Services’ Guidance for Retail Food Establishments Under a Boil Order. Copies may be found on the TSHS website or available at Eastland City Hall.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the City of Eastland 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 Ron Duncan, Eastland City Manager at 254-629-8321.
Heavy icing conditions and falling trees have caused a major power outage in the Eastland area. Due to this outage power has been lost at the main water pumping station for the city.
ALL CITIZENS ARE URGED TO CONSERVE WATER UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
The only water available is what remains in the elevated storage tank at the city park.
Due to our present winter storm and power failures, it appears the City may lose water pressure by the early morning of Thursday, February 22.
While ONCOR crews are working diligently to restore power, we highly advise all our residents and businesses to ensure you have adequate water available for flushing toilets and sufficient bottled water or other supplies on hand for your customers and patients.
We anticipate restoring power sometime early on Thursday but we do not have a firm estimate on when that will be.
Should we lose pressure, once service is restored we will be under a boil water notice.
Thank you for your patience. The city staff will strive to restore normal water and sewer services as quickly as possible. We will issue additional notices as necessary.
Should you have questions please contact Eastland City Hall at (254) 629-8321.
