City of Anton now under a boil water notice

ANTON, TX (KCBD) - After a water line break and a loss of pressure, residents in the city of Anton 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 bottles of water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

When it is no longer necessary to boil water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.

If you have any questions concerning his matter, you may contact Larry Conkin, City Manager at 806-997-2801.
