Laboratory results have confirmed that no contamination was ever present in the water produced by the City of Bunker Hill.  The water is safe for consumption and normal use.  The following is language required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality:

Boil Water Notice Rescinded

02/20/2021

On 02/17/2021 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Bunker Hill public water system, 1010106, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of 02/20/2021.

As we return to normal water service, here are some suggestions for different aspects of home water use:

1. If you have turned off your water either at the shut off valve or at the meter, make sure you turn it back on.  We are still receiving calls from residents saying that they have no water.  All City water mains have been activated and are at normal pressure.

2. Turn on both the hot and cold water at each faucet (including showers and bath tubs) to remove any air trapped in the lines.  

3. If the water is cloudy or discolored, run water in the faucet until it is clear.  Cloudy or discolored water is common due to the disturbance of the water lines.

4. If you have a water dispenser in your refrigerator, run water through it until it is clear or change the filter.

5. Ice cubes created by automatic ice dispensers should be emptied and run through a 24-hour cycle, discarding the ice to assure the icemaker water supply line has been cleared.

6. Run your dishwasher empty for a full cycle.

7. Discard any water used in humidifiers, CPAP machines, or any other electric devices that have a water reservoir and rinse the device with clean water.

8. Flush every toilet.

9. Change any in-line water filters you may have in your house.
