Italy Has A Boil Water Notice!

  • January 17, 2024

This notice will affect all addresses on Hyles, Chad, Rhonda, Cherie, Dallas, McConnell, N. Couch, Sparkman Street and Highway 77 north of the City.

Due to a water main break on January 16, 2024, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Italy to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (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 making ice 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 at least 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 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (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, you may contact the Water Department at 972-483-7329, ext 107.
