Customers of the Central Bowie County Water Supply Corporation are under a boil order affecting customers in Redwater, Malta, Simms, Rural New Boston, and DeKalb. This order does not affect TWU customers.
After issuing the notice,officials with CBCWSC posted this on Social Media:
The previous post contains the mandatory language required by the State of Texas. A Boil Water Notice issued for low residuals does not automatically mean that the water is unsafe or contaminated. It is a required precaution. The water is required to have a disinfectant residual above a certain level. Then if something did go wrong, a line break for example, and something did get into the water, there would be enough disinfectent in the water to inactivate it.
Customers will be updated on the status of the Water System.
