Boil Order For Bells, Texas - - No One Gets You Closer

Boil Order For Bells, Texas


Residents who depend on water from the city of Bells, Texas are being told to boil their water. KTEN just received this statement from the water supervisor in Bells.  We'll have more details as available.

Due to conditions which have occurred recently in the water system, the TCEQ has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption. 
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and ice making 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 from some other source.  when it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will notify you.
I you have questions regarding this matter you may contact the City of Bells at 903-965-7744 or TCEQ at 512-239-4691.
Thank you,
Lorie Rankin
Water Supervisor
