Boil Water Notice Rescinded

April 5, 2021 Boil Water Order Lifted for the following areas:   Harker Heights High School. Normal water usage may resume immediately.

Service has been restored, and all water quality tests have been completed. The water is now safe to drink and use without boiling.

TCEQ Required Notice:

On April 2, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Harker Heights public water system, 0140023, 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 April 5, 2021.

Unfortunately during this time in need there are scammers claiming to be FEMA and is asking for personal information.

It may look something like this:

🚨🚨FEMA is finally here Texas! If you're still without power and need a place to warm up/clean up and sleep until things restore....

FEMA is paying for hotels. If you know of anyone that needs it.

Press 1 for Texas Disaster Relief and follow prompts.

You will need and know the following: Pen/paper, date of disaster, SS#, address, income, and home/apt insurance info. The process should take about 20-30 minutes to complete.
