Boil Water Notice Rescinded – Rio Brazos

On 2/18/2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Fort Bend County FWSD No. 2 – Rio Brazos Area public water system, PWS ID TX0790440, 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 2/23/2021.

The following are some suggested actions that can taken now that the boil water notice has been rescinded:

  • Flush all fixtures (e.g., faucets, drinking fountains) for several minutes
    • Discard ice from the ice machine and clean and sanitize per manufacturer’s instructions
    • Remove point of use filter and flush outlets for several minutes before installing new filters (e.g., ice machines, sinks and showers)
  • Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle
  • Drain, disinfect, flush and refill water storage tanks
  • Change pre-treatment filters, backwash carbon tanks, clean and disinfect RO membranes and disinfect dialysis distribution loops
