ODESSA – A portion of the City of Odessa is currently under a boil water notice.

City customers bound by the area of 56th Street north to Loop 338 and West Loop 338 east to Faudree Road need to boil their water prior to consumption.

Due to several large main breaks causing a loss of system pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, City of Odessa / PWS ID#0680002, notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
