Update on Boil Water Notice

Dwight Osteen (MUD #28 President) has spoken with our operator, H2O Innovation. Samples of our water supply were taken for testing. Results could be available as early as 4:00 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, 2/20/21. When the results become available, H20 Innovation plans to contact Mr. Osteen and post signs in the neighborhood to alert District residents.

As stated in the original notice posted on 2/17/21, continue to boil water for brushing teeth, washing hands/face, drinking, cooking, etc. to ensure your family’s safety. (Refer to the full notice here for additional information.)

Thank you for your understanding and kind thoughts. Please continue to check on and help your neighbors as we all make it through this challenge together.

Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems

Due to reduced system pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the NWHCMUD 28’s public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions).

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, 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.

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

Once conditions return to normal, we will post the appropriate notice.
