Willow Park has issued a boiled water advisory for August 12, 2014. The notice was worded as follows:
Due to a water main break and the loss of water pressure the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our Water System, the City of Willow Park Public Water System 1840027 to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes that may have been stirred up by the main break and loss of pressure, water for drinking, cooking and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. 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. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
If you have any questions concerning this matter, you may contact City Administrator, Matt Shaffstall at 817-441-7108. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
