October 28, 2018

Travis County WCID #10 – Boil Water Notice Cancelled

On October 22, 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Travis County WCID #10 public water system, PWS# 2270182, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers 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 of October 28, 2018.

Mandatory Water Conservation Measures will continue until further notice. No outdoor watering is allowed.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Darrell Winslett with Crossroads Utility Services, LLC at 512-246-1400.
