City officials in Goodrich released a boil water notice Thursday due to a water loss. 

The water loss was caused by a main breakage when a boring company hit a water line, draining a large portion of the city’s supply.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Goodrich to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption, in instances such as washing hands or face, brushing teeth or drinking. 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.

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 water or human consumption purposes.

All are asked to share this information with others who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly. Those with questions concerning this matter are asked to contact the City of Goodrich at 936-365-228. The City of Goodrich will issue a rescind notice as soon as samples return.
