Boil Water Advisory- Camp Joy
July 02, 2021
Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems
Due to loss of power resulting in loss of pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required Texas Water Systems to notify all Camp Joy 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, Texas Water System will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The earliest this will occur is Tuesday, July 6th due to the Holiday
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 Texas Water Systems at 903-595-2128.
