City of Matador Under Boil Water Notice

Due to a mechanical failure with the disinfection system, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigarous 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, water system officials will notify you. City officials expect boiling will be necessary for at least 48 hours.
