Beeville remains under water notice

  Boil Water Notice for the City of Beeville Remains in Effect


Due to recent samplings of the City tap water that failed to register an adequate level of residual chlorine in the sample, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Beeville 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. The water can be used for all non-consumptive measures (i.e. showering, laundry, etc).

At 4:00 pm August 4th 2017, The Morrill water plant began a “conversion” to convert the water treatment from a “mixed treatment” of Chlorine and Ammonia to “only Chlorine”. In order to complete this process the water in the storage tanks needed to be emptied of the mixed treatment water and filled with the only Chlorine water. During this time the City has been flushing several hydrants throughout the city to fill the system with chlorinated water. As a result of having to nearly empty each water storage tank to properly complete the conversion the City has not been able to maintain the Chlorine residual for 24 hours as required by TCEQ.

When the conversion is complete there will be the required minimum Chlorine residual through our system. TCEQ will do follow-up testing and make their recommendations on 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 City Manager William DiLibero at 361-542-9327 or Utilities Director Wayne Shaffer at 361-362-5698; 400 North Washington Street, Beeville Texas.
