City of Mount Vernon Issues Boil Notice

boil water

Due to low system pressure as a result of low water levels, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, the City of Mount Vernon/800001, 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.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Troy Massengill, Water Director or Darrek Ferrell, City Administrator at (903) 537-2252.

A refill switch on water tower malfunctioned.  Water tower did not refill overnight causing problems. Local restaurants serving bottled water and canned drinks.

At least two (2) fast food establishments, Huddle House and Sonic, are both closed due to the water boil notice, according to residents there.
