The Elm Creek Water Supply Corp. has issued a boil water notice for some customers after the installation of a new pressure relief valve.

Customers affected by the notice live near the intersection of West Big Elm Road and Old Highway 81 proceeding south approximately 1/2 a mile ending at Old Troy Road.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water, or obtain water from another suitable source.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will issue a rescind notice.

Customers with questions regarding this matter may contact Elm Creek Water Supply Office at 254-853-3838.
