Boil Water Rescind Notice
On FEBRUARY 15, 2021, 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.

Public Notice to Boil Water
DATE: FEBRUARY 15, 2021 TIME: 2:00 P.M.
Due to a drop in pressure in the CITY OF EASTLAND water system, 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.
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. Texas Department of Health Services has state anyone with a Reverse Osmosis filtering system is not required to boil their water.
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.
