The City of Rusk has issued a boil water notice for certain sections of the city due to conditions that have recently occurred in the water system.

Residents on CR 1503, CR 1504, and CR 1508 need to boil their water prior to consumption.

Water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use to ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. Instead of boiling residents can purchase bottled water or obtain from an alternate source.

Water system officials will send out a notification when the water is safe for consumption.

For questions regarding this matter, contact Rusk Rural Water Supply office at (903) 683-6178.
