Drinking Water Problem

Mandatory Language for Public Notification


Due to inability to maintain adequate disinfectant residuals, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system Corpus Christi State Water System ID#:PWS 1780003  to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, 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.


For more information, please contact Gabriel Ramirez, at (361) 826-1202 or 1201 Leopard Street.

This notice is being sent to you by the City of Corpus Christi.
