Due to Hurricane Harvey a Precautionary Boil Water Notification Has Been Issued by the City of Corpus Christi

Due to conditions within the city caused by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey, a precautionary boil water notice is being issued by the City of Corpus Christi (TX 178003) public water system to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption (washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). This applies to customers who get a water utility bill from the City of Corpus Christi. Because of the storm, the water system has become unstable and out of an abundance of caution the City wants to protect residents.

The City is committed to bring the water system back to normal levels once the storm has passed and crews can stabilize the system. The goal is to lift the advisory as soon as possible.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption.  Children, seniors and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.  Bottled water is also an acceptable source of consumption.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water the City of Corpus Christi provide similar notification. Citizens can receive on-going information about the water boil advisory at the City website at www.cctexas.com (newsroom) or http://news.cctexas.com

For more information, please contact Clarence Wittwer, at (361) 826-1208. This notice is being sent to you by the City of Corpus Christi.
