City of Tahoka under boil water notice

TAHOKA, TX (KCBD) - The City of Tahoka is now under a boil water notice and will be until further notice. A main like water break caused city-wide water services to be disrupted.

During a boil water advisory:

  • Do not consume tap water that has not been disinfected, ice or drinks made from tap water that has not been disinfected, or raw foods rinsed with tap water that has not been disinfected.
  • Disinfect water by boiling at a rolling boil for 1 minute
  • Safe alternative sources of potable water include bottled, treated or distilled water. 
  • Sanitize dishes by washing in dishwashing machines that have a dry cycle or a final rinse that exceeds 113E F for 20 minutes or 122E F for 5 minutes or 162E F for 1 minute. Hand-washed dishes should be rinsed for one minute in a dilute bleach solution (1 tablespoon per gallon) and allowed to air dry.
  • It is okay to wash clothes.
  • Provide pets with boiled water after it is cooled.

Upon rescinding of a boil water advisory:

  • Flush household pipes/faucets: run cold water faucets for 3 minutes each if they have not been used in the last 24 hours.
  • Flush home automatic ice makers: make three batches of ice cubes and discard all three batches.
  • Drain and refill your hot water heater if set at a low temperature (below 113E F).
  • Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle.
  • Drain reservoirs in tall buildings.
  • Flush drinking fountains: run continuously for 3 minutes
