Boil Water Notice Rescinded
February 21, 2021
On February 16, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Bellaire, public water system, 1010004, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of February 21, 2021.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Mark Longino at 713-662-8172, 4401 Edith St. Bellaire, TX 77401.
Please follow these suggested guidelines as you begin to use the water:
- If you have turned off your water either at the shutoff valve or at the meter, make sure you turn it back on.
- Turn on both the hot and cold water at each faucet (including showers and bathtubs) to remove any air trapped in the lines. You should run the water for at least five minutes.
- If the water is cloudy or discolored, run water in the faucet until it is clear. Cloudy or discolored water is common due to the disturbance of the water lines.
- If you have a water dispenser in your refrigerator, run water through it until it is clear or change the filter.
- Ice cubes created by automatic ice dispensers should be emptied and run through a 24-hour cycle, discarding the ice to assure the icemaker water supply line has been cleared.
- Run your dishwasher empty for a full cycle.
- Discard any water used in humidifiers, CPAP machines, or any other electric devices that have a water reservoir and rinse the device with clean water.
- Flush every toilet.
- Change any in-line water filters you may have in your house.
