City of Strawn Boil Water Notice 2/19/2021

Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems

2/19/2021

Due to loss of pressure caused by frozen water lines, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Strawn, PWS TX 1820005 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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 Danny Miller at (254) 672-5311, Strawn City Hall, 118 East Housley St, Strawn, TX 76475. City of Strawn was able to restore pressure to the system after the pipes were thawed. This notice will be rescinded once a sample of water has been tested by an accredited lab and results found acceptable by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Sources of Drinking Water
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, 
ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the 
ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can 
pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small 
amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water 
poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be 
obtained by calling the EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
•      Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment 
plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
•      Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result 
from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas 
production, mining, or farming.
•      Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, 
urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
•      Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are 
by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, 
urban storm water runoff, and septic systems.
•      Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas 
production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the 
amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish 
limits fo contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Contaminants may be found in drinking water that may cause taste, color, or odor problems. These 
types of problems are not necessarily causes for health concerns.  For more information on taste, 
odor, or color of drinking water, please contact the system's business office.
You may be more vulnerable than the general population to certain microbial contaminants, such as 
Cryptosporidium, in drinking water. Infants, some elderly, or immunocompromised persons such as 
those undergoing chemotherapy for cancer; persons who have undergone organ transplants; those who 
are undergoing treatment with steroids; and people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, 
can b particularly at risk from infections. You should seek advice about drinking water from your 
physician or health care providers Additional guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of 
infection by Cryptosporidium are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant 
women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components 
associated with service lines and home plumbing. We are responsible for providing high quality 
drinking water, but we cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When 
your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by 
flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you 
are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead 
in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from 
the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Information about Source Water Assessments:
TCEQ completed an assessment of your source water, and results indicated that some of our sources 
are susceptible to certain contaminants.  The sampling requirements for you water system is based 
on this susceptibility and previous sample data.  Any detections of these contaminants will be 
found in this Consumer Confidence Report.  For more information on the source water assessments and 
protection efforts at our system, please contact Danny Miller, City Secretary at (254) 672-5311.
Water Quality Test Results Explanation of Acronyms Used in this Report:  The following tables 
contain scientific terms and measures, some of which may require explanation.
Avg: Regulatory compliance with some MCLs are based on running annual average of monthly samples.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking 
water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment 
technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which 
there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for 
control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below 
which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use 
of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Level 1 Assessment: A level 1 assessment is a study of the water system to identify potential 
problems and determine (if possible) why total coliform bacteria have been found in our water 
system.
 
 
 
 
Level 2 Assessment: A level 2 assessment is a very detailed study of the water system to identify 
potential problems and determine (if possible why an E. coli MCL violation has occurred and/or why 
total coliform bacteria have been found in our water system on multiple occasions.
Treatment Technique or TT: A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in 
drinking water.
MFL: million fibers per liter (a measure of asbestos)

The Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) seeks to prevent waterborne diseases caused by E. coli. E. 
coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal 
wastes. Human pathogens in these wastes can cause short-term effects, such as diarrhea, cramps, 
nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a greater health risk for infants, young 
children,

We failed to submit our operational evaluation level (OEL) report to our regulator. The  report is 
needed to determine best treatment practices necessary to minimize possible future exceedances of 
TTHM.
Water samples showed that the amount of this contaminant in our drinking water was above its 
standard (called a maximum contaminant level and abbreviated MCL) for the period indicated.
