CITY OF PORTLAND RESCINDS BOIL WATER NOTICE
The City of Portland completed all procedures required by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to end the Boil Water Notice. Water Boil Notice Rescinded February 20, 2021. See the full Notice of Rescinded Boil Water Advisory here:
Portland’s water supply is safe for consumption. Portland residents should flush household pipes, ice makers, water fountains, etc. prior to using for drinking or cooking. Flushing simply means letting the water run to ensure that no contaminated water remains in your pipes. Follow the following guidelines for flushing:
- Run all cold-water faucets in your home for one minute
- To flush automatic ice makers, make three batches of ice and discard
- Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle
Portland had one of the shortest Boil Water Notices and was one of the first cities to rescind this notice in our region. The City of Portland thanks our residents for helping identify leaks throughout our city limits. The City also thanks our staff for working around the clock this past week.
