BOIL WATER NOTICE
AQUA WATER SUPPLY CORPORATION – PWS ID011013
415 Old Austin Hwy
Bastrop, TX 78602
Due to conditions which have occurred recently in the water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required Aqua Water to notify customers to boil water prior to consumption. The affected area is the entire Aqua Water service area.
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 vigorous 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, Aqua Water Supply Corporation officials will notify you.
Aqua Water Supply also requests that you minimize water usage until this issue has been resolved.
At approximately 8:00 A.M., Tuesday, February 16, 2021, all of the Aqua Water Supply system experienced low pressure as a result of winter storm conditions and power outages. This loss of pressure may have allowed harmful microbes into the water system. Once repairs are complete, and the system is restored to normal operating conditions. The system will then be flushed with chlorinated water, and the boil water notice will only be lifted after our tests confirm the water is safe to drink. As soon as Aqua receives sample results, Aqua will notify customers through telephone messages, local media and cable channel 1.
