Customers of Salem Elm Ridge Water Supply in Cameron and Buckholts are being asked to boil their water until further notice. 

According to a water system representative we spoke to via telephone, a water main broke, causing a major depletion in an area tank. That tank is now replenished, but water from that system should be boiled as a safety precaution.

Any water meant for consumption should be left at a rolling boil for at least 60 seconds, and any water or ice set aside within the past 24 hours should be re-purposed for non-consumption or discarded. For more information, contact Robert Jekel at (254) 697-4016 or the TCEQ at (512) 239-4691.

This order does not affect residents along FM 1600 or the Curry Rd. area.
