Update: Boil all water for drinking purposes until further notice. The water main at the creek has been repaired. As well as the hook up to the Corbet Water Supply. Please turn off your ice maker - until the boil water notice is removed.
We will not be filling containers or have drinking water at the Civic Center on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
BOIL WATER NOTIFICATION
PWSID # 1750020 Richland Water System
Due to conditions which have occurred recently in the water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption. This action is necessary because of a water break on the main transmission line, causing the system to lose pressure.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, we will notify you.
Thank you to Turquoise Pistol Boutique, The Rogue Cakery, The Red Cross and True Value Distribution Center for the donated drinking water. Thank you the City of Corsicana for the water truck and 2,000 gallons of water for flushing and to the City of Angus for giving us permission to fill up the Fire truck to provide flushing water. We appreciate all the donations. Thanks to Eric Meyers from the Office of Emergency Management for helping us out during this time.
Thanks to Corbet Water Supply for allowing us to hook up. Thanks to Scott and Ron at Community Water for their long hours and hard work. We appreciate it!
