The boil water notice has been lifted:



The City Of Sealy has issued a “Boil Water Notice” for residents of the city.

Boil Water Notice For Community
Public Water Systems Starting On
January 3, 2023

Due to valve replacement activities, the Texas Commission on the Environmental Quality has required the City of Sealy to notify some affected 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 City of Sealy 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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 live in the vicinity of the attached map 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 and or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact public Works Director, Patrick Parsons, at 979-885-3511.

Residents who live in the colored area on the map below will be affected by the notice.  Should you have any doubt, please, heed the warning as a precaution.
