Good news if you live in the Hooks, Texas area, the Boil Water Notice has been rescinded as of Saturday, March 9.

According to the Press Release:

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Hooks public water system, PWS ID 0190002, and Burns Red Bank Water Supply 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 March 9, 2019 at 10:00 AM.
