Welcome to City of Beeville, Texas

                                                                              FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
                                                              Boil Water Notice for the City of Beeville Has Been Rescinded
                                                            Expect Chlorine Odors and Taste in the Water for the Short-term

The City of Beeville Boil Water Order has been lifted.

On August 4th, 2017, the City of Beeville started a disinfectant conversion from Chloramines to free Chlorine. This is being done as a corrective maintenance measure to alleviate nitrification in our distribution system. Please be aware that the change in treatment may cause taste and odor problems but will have no adverse health effects. The City will resume chloramine disinfection in 30 to 45 days.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink City 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, please contact City Manager William DiLibero at 361-542-9327 or Utilities Director Wayne Shaffer at 361-362-5698; 400 North Washington Street, Beeville Texas.

                                                             Boil Water Rescind Notice

On Aug 1st, 2017, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required The City of Beeville public water system, PWS ID 0130001 to issue a Boil Water Notice (BWN) to inform our customers that due to not maintaining the required chlorine residual, water from our system must be boiled prior to consumption.

Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling as of Aug 15th, 2017.

If you have questions, contact the City Manager, William DiLibero at 361-542-9327 or Utilities Director, Wayne Shaffer at 361-362-5698.

                                                          FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
                               Boil Water Notice for the City of Beeville Remains in Effect

The City of Beeville Boil Water Order continues to be in effect. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Beeville public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption; washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking. 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. The water can be used for all non-consumptive measures such as showering, dishwashing and laundry.

Chlorine levels in the Beeville water supply system are continuing to rise but have yet to meet the levels required by the TCEQ to lift the Boil Water order.

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.

                                          Boil Water Notice for the City of Beeville Remains in Effect


Due to recent samplings of the City tap water that failed to register an adequate level of residual chlorine in the sample, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Beeville 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. The water can be used for all non-consumptive measures (i.e. showering, laundry, et. cet).

At 4:00 pm August 4th 2017, The Morrill water plant began a “conversion” to convert the water treatment from a “mixed treatment” of Chlorine and Ammonia to “only Chlorine”. In order to complete this process the water in the storage tanks needed to be emptied of the mixed treatment water and filled with the only Chlorine water. During this time the City has been flushing several hydrants throughout the city to fill the system with chlorinated water. As a result of having to nearly empty each water storage tank to properly complete the conversion the City has not been able to maintain the Chlorine residual for 24 hours as required by TCEQ.

When the conversion is complete there will be the required minimum Chlorine residual through our system. TCEQ will do follow-up testing and make their recommendations on the boil water notice.

                                            Boil Water Notice for the City of Beeville Remains in Effect

Due to a recent sampling of the City tap water that failed to register an adequate level of residual chlorine in the sample, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)has required the City of Beeville 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. The water can be used for all non-consumptive measures (i.e. showering, laundry, et. cet).

The City is continuing the monitoring and sampling steps with the TCEQ and Department of Health. The steps include the collection of samples with a TCEQ staff member on site. Sampling did not begin until 11:45am today and results indicate areas within the City that do not meet the required Chlorine residual.

Due to the sampling process, it is expected that the notice will remain in effect to the beginning of next week. Once samples are taken they are then delivered to a certified testing laboratory in Corpus Christi. Following a 24 hour holding time, the results are delivered to TCEQ in Corpus Christi and based on the sample results the Agency decides whether to recommend the lifting of the boil water order. As mentioned it is expected that no notice will remain in effect until the beginning of next week. Until that time, the Boil Water Order remains in effect.

The initial complaint was filed for a localized area that is known to have low water usage and water in the system with a high water age (sits in the pipe for long periods of time). The water ban notice requested by TCEQ has been initiated for the entire City. There are two reasons for this. First, the TCEQ was uncertain that the problem was limited to a local area. Daily monitoring has established that low Chlorine residuals exist in other areas that have low water use, dead ends, and high aged water in the system.

Also, the City’s water system is based on three water pressure planes. These pressure planes indicate that the water in the pipes is located at the same elevation or height. This allows the water within a pressure plane to travel anywhere within that plane. (See Water Distribution Map.) Additionally, there are areas within the pressure plane that always have periods where water stays in the system for longer periods of time creating aged or older water. (See Water Age Map.) The initial violation was identified in one of these areas (Tyler/Hefferman/Grammer Streets). Also, the warmer temperatures result in a shorter time for the chlorine to evaporate in the water. This also causes low chlorine residuals and requires additional chlorine needs to be added to the water supply system.

In summary, areas of the Madison/Mussett water pressure plane (Beeville’s downtown area),with areas of low water use (as indicated in the City’s Water Distribution and Water Age Maps), are most susceptible to have water with insufficient chlorine residuals.

In summary, areas of the Downtown Beeville with areas of low water use (as indicated in the two City maps are most susceptible to water with insufficient chlorine residuals.
