The City of Hooks has notified all media outlets to please report that the "boil water order" has been rescinded. The water is once again safe for human consumption for the City of Hooks and Burns Red Bank water supplies.

More details:

On October 8th, 2019, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Hooks Public Water System, PWS ID 0190002 City of Hooks, and Burns Red Bank water supply 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 been taking 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 to use as of October 15th 2019 at 9:51 am.
