Boil Water Notice Issued for Part of Pelican Island
Bottled or Boiled Water Necessary for all Residents and Businesses East of Texas Clipper Road
Until Further Notice
(Galveston, TX) – A boil water notice has been issued for all residents and businesses affected by the recent water outage on Pelican Island. Earlier this week City of Galveston crews began making emergency repairs to a leaking 20” water main at the corner of Bradner and Seawolf Parkway. Water service was interrupted at 8AM on Tuesday, November 29 and due to complications repairs continued through today. As of 5PM today, Thursday, December 1, 2011, water has been restored to the affected area.
As a precaution, all residents located east of Texas Clipper Road will need to use bottled water for human consumption or to boil water prior to consumption until further notice. Pets or animals should not be allowed to drink this water. Additionally, the City is asking all residents to use the restored water conservatively.
The City of Galveston will test water samples taken from the Pelican Island water main and lift the boil water notice once the samples meet all State and Federal Standards for potable drinking water. The City will issue a formal announcement when the boil water alert has been rescinded.
The City sincerely apologizes to those Pelican Island residents and businesses affected by the leak. We thank you for your continued patience. For more information please contact the City of Galveston’s Public Works Department at (409) 797-3630.
