The Greater Gardendale Water Supply Corporation has issued a boil water notice.

The notice was issued due to a line break at the pump station.

As a result, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify call customers to boil their water prior to consumption.

Officials say to ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In lieu of boiling, you can purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
