Boil water notice in effect for parts of rural Coke County


According the to the Coke County Water Supply Corporation's office, the boil water notice is likely to be in effect until Friday due to a water line break last Monday.

Kelly Baker with CCWS says that the water line break was repaired, but daily water quality testing for contaminants is required for a prolonged period of time.

The boil water notice is affecting approximately 180 to 200 customers in rural Coke County. 


Due to a water line break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Coke County Water Supply Corporation #0410017 to notify customers for the need to boil water prior to consumption until further notice.

This does not include the cities of Robert Lee or Sterling City. 

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use.

The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. You may purchase bottled water or obtain water from another suitable source. 

If you have any questions, please call the CCWSC office at 325-453-2078. More information can be found at https://cokecountywsc.myruralwater.com/
