Due to reduced distribution system pressure, the City of Brownfield public water system would like to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption. Children, Seniors and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these instructions.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
