The Bilma Public Utility District has issued a boiled water advisory to our customers.
Our routine sampling, as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), detected coliform organisms. While we feel chlorine levels are sufficient to eliminate the coliform organisms, the TCEQ requires us to advise customers to boil water to ensure safe consumption.
We have already re-sampled water and are having it tested at a certified lab. We expect to see safe drinking water levels in the next lab report on Thursday, January 10. We will keep you informed through notices on our web site and signs posted in the community. A copy of the boil water notice required by the TCEQ is below.
We apologize for the inconvenience of this situation. The Bilma Board will conduct a full-review of the test and lab process to ensure safe delivery of superior water quality to our residents, in accordance with EPA and TCEQ requirements.
