Due to a water main break that resulted in low pressures in the water distribution system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the Angelina County FWSD No. 1 public water system to notify all customers to boil their water before consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

Angelina County FWSD No. 1 serves water customers in the Cedar Grove Community, approximately 1 mile north of the City of Lufkin along FM 2251. A map of the District’s service area can be found at www.acfwater.org/district-map.html.

To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice-making should be boiled and cooled before use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

Instead of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, Angelina County FWSD No. 1 officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, Angelina County FWSD No. 1 will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice like this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Mr. Jeremiah Poling, Deputy General Manager, Angelina & Neches River Authority at (936) 632-7795 or (800) 282-5634.
