More boil water notices lifted throughout the RGV

Alamo residents and customers of the Agua Special Utility District are no longer advised to boil water before consumption, officials from both entities announced Tuesday.

The city of Alamo announced they rescinded a boil water notice that was implemented in the aftermath of freezing temperatures that had caused low water pressure at various public water systems throughout the Rio Grande Valley.

When water pressure at public water systems falls below a certain level, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires they issue a boil water notice to their customers, informing them of the need to boil water before it is safe for drinking or other 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 February 23, 2021,” the city said in a statement.

Agua SUD, which serves residents on the west side of Hidalgo County and portions of Starr County, also rescinded their boil water notice on Tuesday.

For more information, Alamo residents can contact Juan Vega, chief water plant operator, at (956) 787-2232.

Agua SUD customers can contact Aaron Castillo at (956) 240-7918 or can contact Agua SUD at 3120 N. Abram Rd. in Palmview.
