GROESBECK, TX — (UPDATE: July 18, 2019, 10:33 p.m.) The City of Groesbeck has rescinded their boil water notice.

=========

(UPDATE: July 18, 2019 5:54 p.m.) Groesbeck is still under a boil water notice after the City did not receive lab results by the end of business today.

==========

A boil water notice has been issued for Groesbeck.

Due to a planned water outage, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required that the city's public water system notify all of their customers to boil water before consumption.

Children, seniors and people with weakened immune systems are vulnerable to harmful bacteria and all customers should do the following:

  • 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 boil and then boiled for two minutes
  • In lieu of boiling, people can purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water

When it is no longer necessary to boil water, the public water system will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking.
