Due to rolling power outages within the City’s water system this has caused water distribution pressures to fall below 20 psi for 𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐓 𝐎𝐅 𝐎𝐍𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐂𝐑𝐄𝐄𝐊, 𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐎𝐥𝐝 𝐓𝐨𝐰𝐧/𝐃𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐁𝐮𝐝𝐚, 𝐒𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐨𝐲𝐚𝐡, 𝐁𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐚 𝐕𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚, 𝐁𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐟𝐢𝐞𝐥𝐝 𝐕𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐀𝐬𝐡𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐤, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐚 𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐈-𝟑𝟓. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Buda public water system to notify effected 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Mike Beggs at 512-312-2876 or Blake Neffendorf at email@example.com
. The City of Buda has been actively working with Guadalupe Blanco River Authority to restore our surface water supply and also with Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC), the electric service provider for the area to get an estimated timeline on when electric service will be restored. Once system pressure has been restored and drinking water test results deem our water safe for consumption, the City will issue a cancelation of the boil water notice
