[ARCHIVED] Boil Water Notice for League City Still Underway


UPDATE SUNDAY 8:30 A.M.: The City of Houston, which supplies the bulk of our water, is waiting for acceptable bacterial test results required by the State before the notice can be lifted. We should know more later Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.   

Due to current regional and area wide water system demand associated with the on-going weather event, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of League City public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc. Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). 

Once lifted, the City will notify residents here on the City's website and on the City's social media channels.

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.

Public water systems are required to maintain water pressure above 20 psi (normal system pressure is between 60 and 65 psi) and are required to issue a boil water notice if it goes below this level due to the potential for biological contaminants in the water. 

Read our Boil Water Q & A to learn more about how to safely navigate your water usage during this time.
