Boil Water Rescinded Notice

On  June 7, 2016 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required our public water system City of Bells, PWS ID 0910001 to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform our customers that due to the presence of contaminates or an interruption in service, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.

Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and /or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of June 9, 2016 at 3:30 p.m.

If you have questions, contact City of Bells at 903/965/7744.
