A copy of the rescind notice is available for download on the right-hand side of the page under "DOWNLOADS."
As of Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 1:30 PM, City of Hudson Oaks water utility customers are instructed to boil their water until further notice. This order is required per TCEQ because the power which runs the utility pumps was down or off for more than four hours during the winter storm. The City of Hudson Oaks public water system is supplied by ground water from aquifer wells and surface water purchased from the City of Weatherford which is treated prior to entering the system. The Hudson Oaks' system does not require surface water treatment, and the water supply has not changed. Minimal chlorination treatment is utilized for water held in ground storage tanks. The boil order is required due to the pumps being offline for an extended period of time.

CITY OF HUDSON OAKS BOIL WATER NOTICE
Issued Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 1:30 PM and in effect until further notice
Because the rolling power outages impacted the City of Hudson Oaks’ ability to move water to customers in the public water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires the PWS 1840006 (Hudson Oaks public water system) to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions).
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Brittney Huff at (682) 229-9101.
