Crosbyton residents are under a boil water notice as of Tuesday night, according to city officials.
They say it is because of a water main break and affects all people on the city's water services.
KCBD NewsChannel 11 received this fax from the city of Crosbyton:
Due to reduced pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system The City of Crosbyton: PWS ID # 0540001 to notify customers of the 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 bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the 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 questions concerning this matter, you may contact David Mullins (Water Superintendent) at (806)-675-2301.
If a customer wished to contact the TCEQ, they may call (512)-239-4691.
