Boil Water Advisory

July 22, 2022

Due to a water main break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Shoreacres public water system to notify all 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 public water system 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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.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 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 hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact John Lee at (832) 649-1996.

Storm Debris Pickup

Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia is assisting the city with storm debris pickup.

Pickups will occur tomorrow and Friday starting at 6 am.

They will ONLY pick up vegetation. If you have mixed trash or building materials in with your vegetation, they will not pick it up and you will be responsible for disposing of it.

I very much appreciate Commissioner Garcia’s support.

New Flagpole

I hope that you have seen our new flagpole at the entrance to the city on Shoreacres Blvd. It replaces the maritime style flagpole that we’ve had for quite a while.

The problem with that pole was that it was simply too small. When we needed to lower the flags to half-staff, the flags looked like they were almost on the ground. The new pole is 2 1/2 times the height of the old one and the flags are almost three times the size. They look awesome and at night we have a light highlighting them.

Many thanks to Chad Burke, Karen Gregory and the Economic Alliance Houston Port Region for their generous grant that made this possible. City Manager Troy Harrison worked with the the alliance to make this happen.
