THIS NOTICE WILL AFFECT ALL RESIDENTS INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS OF ITALY:

Due to a water main break on June 19, 2020, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system 0700028 to notify customers 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 a different 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. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issed in the same manner as this notice.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Shawn Holden at 972-483-7329. If you are interested in receiving alerts on your phone, please use the following form to sign up for phone texts.
