City of Temple Rescinds Boil Water Notice (3rd Street Area)

Due to the loss of system pressure on April 14, 2017, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Temple, PWS ID 0140005, to

notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.

The City was repairing an 8 inch waterline break at the 600 Block of S 3rd St. During the emergency, water pressure in some localized pipes in the area fell below 35 psi. Due to the loss of system pressures, a boil water notice for customers in the immediate vicinity including those in the 100- 300 Blocks of S 7th St, 100-300 Blocks of W Ave F, 600 – 720 Blocks of S 1st St, 100 – 300 Blocks of W Ave H, and 100 –300 W Ave G where urged to boil their water prior to consumption. Some customers may have

experienced water outage.

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 April 18, 2017.

If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact the City’s Utility Department at (254) 298- 5611. If after normal business hours, please leave a brief message and your call will be returned as soon as possible. If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call (512) 239-4691.
