inform our customers that due to an interruption in service, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.
Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of June 17, 2019.

Due to a break in a water main, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Gladewater TX 0920001 public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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 John Choice or Steve Matlock at 903-720-4141 or 903-844-6331. The City of Gladewater is in the process of repairing the main and assuring the pressure is back to required levels. Samples are being taken and sent for testing to assure safe water quality.
