Boil Water Notice Rescinded
October 15, 2021
On October 14, 2021 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Texas Water Systems to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees at Mount Sylvan CR 4201 that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as today, October 15, 2021.

October 14, 2021
A contractor hit a line last night in Mount Sylvan on CR4201. If you were affected by water loss or lower pressure, you need to observe Boil Water conditions. If your lines seem to be cloudy or "dirty" please go to an outside faucet and gently run the water until it is clear and then gently flush your inside lines.
Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems
Due to loss of pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required Texas Water Systems all customers in Mount Sylvan along CR 4201 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, we will notify you that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
