City of Fort Worth issues boil water notice for western portions of the city

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 18, 2021
 
 
Because of a loss of water system pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires the City of Fort Worth, PWS ID 2200012, to notify water customers in the western portions of Fort Worth to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc).
 
This impacts customers from Montgomery Street westward. The three cities in this area that buy drinking water from Fort Worth – Aledo, White Settlement and Westover Hills – have been notified.
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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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.
 
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact the water utility at 817-392-4477 or email MyWaterAccount@FortWorthTexas.gov.
 
The city is working on establishing water distribution sites in this area and will announce these as soon as locations are finalized and water is on site.
