Rose City boil water notice rescinded

New pumps and blowers await installation at the Rose City Water Plant in this archive photo of the plant recorded on September 20th of this year.

“The City of Rose City Water Department issued the following notice on Friday morning, December 22, 2017:
Boil Water Rescind Notice.
On September 1, 2017 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required the public water system of the city of Rose City, PWS 1810139 to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that the system’s water must be boiled prior to consumption due to Tropical Storm Harvey and flooding that occurred in Rose City, Texas.  
Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to resolve adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of December 22, 2017.  
If you have questions, please contact The Rose City City Hall at 409-769-6809.  
If customers wish to reach TCEQ they may call 512-239-4691.  
We still have a lot of issues at the water plant but we are working hard to make sure you have good, safe drinking water. Hopefully no more boil water notices.  We have also converted back to a monochloramine disinfectant, which is what we were using prior to Hurricane Harvey. It is a better and safer disinfectant than free chlorine.
If you have questions you may call Jan Ratcliff 782-3927 Angela Beenen 550-1699.
Merry Christmas from the Operators at the Water Plant in Rose City, Jan Ratcliff, Angela Beenen, and Jan Williams.”
