TRINITY —Due to low chlorine residuals, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Trinity to notify all customers who reside on Elizabeth Street, West Jefferson Street, West Madison Street and Walker Street to boil water prior to consumption.
Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions prior to washing hands and face, brushing teeth or drinking tap water.
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.
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, residents will be notified.
If you have questions concerning this matter, contact Steven Jones at (936) 594-2507.
