WATER BOIL NOTICE IS RESCINDED
Boil Water Notice Rescinded
February 24, 2021
On February 18, 2021 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Granite Shoals public water system, PWS0270049, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of February 24, 2021.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Joshua Hisey, Utility Superintendent at 830-596-3320 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Boil Water Notice Remains in Effect
As reserves approach normal levels, it will improve the ability to find and repair distribution system breaks and leaks. Please continue to report leaks in your neighborhood using the Water Emergency Line at 830-598-6129.
The City of Granite Shoals Water Department continues to see improvement in water pressure in the water distribution system. Storage levels in the water towers continue to climb and productions are stabilizing.
Safe drinking water is vital and the Water Department staff are working to test the water all over the city as pressures are returned.
The Boil Water Notice will remain in place until further notice.
Remember, what you do does matter. Please continue to conserve water.
Stay Safe! We care about you, City of Granite Shoals
The City of Granite Shoals is now under a Boil Water Notice due to prolonged low pressure in the water system. The City is able to operate treatment plants, but at a reduced capacity and is unable to meet the current demand of customers and in order to safeguard the public health, all city water customers must boil their water prior to consumption.
