BOIL WATER RESCINDED

BOIL WATER NOTICE HAS BEEN LIFTED!!! On February 17, 2021 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of South Houston public water system, 1010294 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 22, 2021.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Water Plant at 713 944 2027. System pressures have been stable at greater than 35 psi for the last 24 hours and are continuing to increase. All bacteriological samples collected confirmed that the City of South Houston is currently meeting state water quality standards.

02/19/2021

Due to extreme water pressure issues across our region, the City of South Houston is still under a Boil Water Advisory. This advisory may be lifted by Texas Environmental Commission on Quality (TCEQ) sometime next week. Because of this, the TCEQ is advising the use of bottled water or boiling procedures because the water supply in our area is, or could be, contaminated with bacteria and other harmful organisms that can make you sick.

Below are some FAQs regarding a Boil Water Advisory. Information is based on guidelines from the CDC :

• Use bottled or boiled water that has been cooled for drinking, and to prepare and cook food.
• If bottled water is not available, bring water to a full rolling boil for 2 minutes, then allow it to cool before use.
• Boil tap water even if it is filtered.
• Do not use water from any appliance connected to your water line, such as ice and water from a refrigerator.
• If you feed your baby with formula, provide ready-to-use formula, if available.

HANDWASHING
• In many situations, you can use tap water and soap to wash hands.
• Be sure to scrub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and rinse them well under running water.
• If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

BATHING AND SHOWERING
• Be careful not to swallow any water when bathing or showering.
• Use caution when bathing babies and young children. Consider giving them a sponge bath to reduce the chance of them swallowing water.

BRUSHING TEETH
• Brush teeth with boiled or bottled water. Do not use untreated tap water.

WASHING DISHES
• If possible, use disposable plates, cups, and utensils during a boil water advisory.
• Household dishwashers generally are safe to use if the water reaches a final rinse temperature of at least 150 degrees Fahrenheit (65.55°Celsius), or if the dishwater has a sanitizing cycle.
• Sterilize all baby bottles.

To wash dishes by hand:
-Wash and rinse the dishes as you normally would using hot water.
-In a separate basin, add 1 teaspoon of unscented household liquid bleach for each gallon of warm water.
-Soak the rinsed dishes in the water for at least one minute.
-Let the dishes air dry completely before using again.

LAUNDRY
• It is safe to wash clothes as usual.

HOUSEHOLD CLEANING
• Use bottled water, boiled water, or water that has been disinfected with bleach in order to clean washable toys and surfaces.

CARING FOR PETS
• Pets can get sick by some of the same germs as people or spread germs to people. Provide bottled or boiled water after it has been cooled for pets to use.
• If bottled water is not available, bring water to a full rolling boil for 2 minutes, then allow it to cool before use.
• Boil tap water even if it is filtered.
• Do not use water from any appliance connected to your water line, such as ice and water from a refrigerator.

GARDEN & HOUSEPLANT CARE
• You can use tap water for household plants and gardens.

FEAR manipulates and transforms our Fellow Citizens and Protectors every day. TRANSPARENCY - ACCOUNTABILITY - COMMUNITY POLICING PLEASE CONSIDER... Police, body of officers representing the civil authority of government. Police typically are responsible for maintaining public order and safety, enforcing the law, and preventing, detecting, and investigating criminal activities. These functions are known as policing. ( Webster's dictionary). The definition maybe simplified, but the basis states that Police are persons of authority, armed and able to maintain public order and safety. We have seen may cases of violence set upon Citizens and Police alike in North America. Justified violence? Is that the important issue here? The main issue is that Our Society is filled with FEAR. Police fear for their lives, loss of authority while Citizens Fear those who are suppose to be protecting them. Why the FEAR? So many reasons...Armed Criminality Social injustice & prejudice Racism (personal & institutionalized Availability of weapons Supposed media availability(everyone has a video) Generational Poverty & Unemployment Fear of all kinds transforming our society into groups...cultural, social, political, economic classes, race. Even when we protest the injustices of the world we come face to face with Fear whether it be institutional ignorance, police/social oppression, societal exclusion's. Have you ever been in a predominately poverty stricken community walking at night, see three youths coming towards you on side walk? Hoodies in the dark. What to do. Fear of the possible. A couple driving a premier vehicle in an exclusive neighborhood are stopped. If they were white they'd still be driving, but no. Police check. Why? Fear of the possible. Lets get rid of this fear. Lets change how Police and Policing are viewed. No longer should police be viewed as those to be feared. Policing should be viewed as PEACE KEEPING Police Keepers do what? Stand between opposing forces to negotiate and stop violence. I experienced an event in New York City long ago. We were on a bus when two officers came aboard. A young man stood up and pointed his fire arm at them. What did they do? Have a shootout? No. One officer stepped back down the stairs while the other spoke to the young man. We were all involved in this conversation. The officer knew how to de escalate the situation. The young man went down the stairs, sitting on a bench with an officers while the other stood behind him. Peace Keepers talk, discuss, influence situational experiences. As a clergyman I to learnt the power of intelligent gabbing. Explain the pros and cons of existing or future events. Have a gun, what can happen to you or others if that gun is used. TALK-Walk in Their Shoes - Respond Peace Keepers find solutions to problems. They often hash out political-Personal issues between individuals and groups. Policing has become a multi tasking career. Part police, social worker & diplomate. Remember the Police are agents of The Justice system but they do not punish. The Courts decide what is fair and just. The Police learn and proclaim Laws of the land. Therefore if someone has been perceived to break a law, the police respond in an intelligent controlled manner. Most times violence is not needed. If a law breaker does not fear the police, knowing they will be going to court where they'd be judged violence can be avoided. Do the Police know this? Is every Citizen in Our Land viewed as innocent or possibly guilty. Do the Police Fear Us(the Citizenry) so much that weapons in hand have become habitual? Policing needs to become Community Centered. Police and our citizens need to learn what it is like to live in one another's shoes. I lived in the Bronx of @ a year. White, Black , Hispanic, Asian...we all lived below the poverty line, among those who stood outside of the American experience. Low income, addiction, low prospects. Yet the communities in the Bronx were centers of helpful, charitable Community also. Respect given and taken by all. The police lived in the community. They knew the Fears, Joys and Expectations of their neighbors and responded with open hands & hearts. S**t happened, yes, but there was more good then bad. We need to know each other, seeing our neighbors with new eyes. The prejudices of the past and present can be understood and dealt with intelligently. A Peace Keeper is possibly the most flexible of our armed forces. Thrown into every possible situation they need to adapt and respond in a constructive manner. So too Our Police. Pulling a weapon is a last resort. A Good person standing in their uniform, ready to serve their neighbor should be all that's needed. Armed yes. There are situation that require the authority of a weapon, But the power of intelligent thoughts can be voiced, transforming a situation of potential violence into a act of peaceful good. Our Police need to be trained as peace keepers. The days of turning off body cams, taking a hooligan down town for a beating, hassling someone cause they are in a car, neighborhood not symbolic of their demographic Must end. Eric Cartman, a character of South Park bark's these words "Respect My Authority". That is what is happening throughout North America. Police FEAR loss of their authority. Every ones seemingly questioning that authority on social media, videos and the media. I guess what I am saying is Authority is not as powerful as Respect. Found in the same statement, both words actually compliment each other. Respect My Authority. Police are not in themselves authority, but represent Authority. Who gives them this authority? We do. It is not Them and Us. It is US. WE are the authority they represent. As God says "I Am" we the people should proclaim to all RESPECT OUR AUTHORITY. Who will represent us in the world? The Peace Keepers of society, our neighbor's "THE POLICE". STEVEN KASZAB Bradford, Ontario [email protected]

We used your medics yesterday. They need more training on patient assessment. My father was having a stroke and were going to leave him at home. I had to insist that they take him to the hospital. They were unprofessional in telling me that I could take him to the hospital. They did not perform an accurate stroke test. They did not assess his peripheral motor and sensory functions. This is unacceptable. They need more training or people will senselessly lose function, or their lives!
