PUBLIC BOIL WATER NOTICE
For City of Emory Customers that reside on Skyline Dr., Wells St. and customers on south side of 276 from Skyline Dr. to Cedar Ridge Subdivision and including Cedar Ridge Subdivision.
Due to water main break, low pressure or no water on July 22, 2021 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system City of Emory, PWS ID # 1900001 to notify customer of the need to boil their water prior to consumption. To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. Instruction to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice. If you should have question concerning this matter, you may contact Blake Brumit, Public Works Director at 903-473-2465 ext. 100.
Dumpsters are CLOSED until further notice, due to construction at the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
The tentative dumpster date is set for the week of September 27, 2021.
The City of Emory public water system, (PWS) ID1900001, will temporarily convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from chloramine to free chlorine. The conversion will begin on August 1 and continue through August 31, 2021. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of temporary disinfectant conversion.
Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with ammonia, is widley used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants. Prolonged use of chloramine coupled with other factors that can affect water quality, such as high temperatures or stagnation of water, may result in the growth and/or persistence of organic matter within the pipes of the distribution system, which may hinder the ability to maintain an adequate disinfectant residual. A temporary conversion to free chlorine, partnered with flushing activities, helps to rid distribution pipes of this organic matter and improve the quality of your water.
If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Blake Brumit at 903-473-2465 x100
