Service Interruptions

Customers on Hwy 1188 and in the Patillo area will experience periodic service interruptions today due to maintenance on that end of the system. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Boil Water Notice - Rescinded

On June 15, 2017, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required Barton Water Supply, TX0720013, 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.

Barton Water Supply has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by the 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 6/22/17.

Boil Water Notice

Due to a catastrophic break in the system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the system to notify members affected to boil their water prior to consumption.

 

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption.  The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.  In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.  When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will notify you.
