SWSC ISSUES BOIL WATER NOTICE 9.14.2021

 Boil Water Notice

for Selkirk Water Supply Corporation

September 14, 2021

 

Due to distribution system pressure , line break, low disinfection residuals, etc., the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Selkirk Water Supply Corp a public water system to notify all 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, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

 

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar. Please watch the large sign at the entrance of Selkirk for the lifting of the Boil Water Notice.

 

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 Selkirk Water at 979-429-7383 or 979-241-1297 President or 979-877-8249 Secretary.

Boil Water Notice Rescinded

On February 17, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Selkirk WSC public water system, 1610027, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees 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 February 25, 2021.

SELKIRK WATER SUPPLY CORPORATION

BOIL WATER Notice coming…..

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS are aware of the low water pressure along with no power in Selkirk. This long power outage has caused the low pressure. We do feel like there will be a BOIL WATER NOTICE in the near future as water is restored.  When our Operator can safely travel to our wells, flushing and testing may also be required. If you have any questions call 979-877-8249.

Thank you.

Stay safe during this bad winter storm. Cell phone service in Selkirk is out as well.
