UPDATE: June 20, 2017 – Boil Water Rescind Notice Issued. It is no longer necessary to boil water.
Boil Water Notice (6/17/2017)
Issued By the City of Ranger Water Department
Due to a water main break that has occurred recently in the water system, we are required to issue a Boil Water Notice to conform to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements for our public water system. The City of Ranger Water Department, PWS ID 0670004, is notifying all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and for making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. The rescind notice will be issued in the same manner as this Boil Water Notice.
If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact the City of Ranger or Roger Drews at 254-647-3522.
If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call 512-239-4691.
