Important Update:

Due to a pipe separation of Brazosport Water Authority's High Service Discharge Manifold resulting in low distribution water pressures, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required Brazosport Water Authority to notify all customers to boil their water prior to 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).

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

In lieu 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, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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.

Most BWA customers have switched to their backup secondary water sources. This does not mean that all cities will be affected. If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact your local city or Brazosport Water Authority at (979) 297-2715.

Brazosport Water Authority is working diligently to make necessary repairs and restore service to all customers as quickly and as safely as possible. Thank you.
