The Cities of Brenham and Burton are no longer under boil water advisories.

After being issued on February 17th, Brenham’s notice was rescinded this (Tuesday) morning, while Burton’s was lifted this afternoon.  Lab results provided to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) indicate their water no longer requires boiling prior to use.

Both cities say they have taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water they distribute for drinking or human consumption purposes.

Customers should flush household pipes, ice makers, water fountains and other taps before using them for drinking or cooking.  Flushing means letting the water run to ensure there is fresh water flowing through the pipes.

Residents can flush their systems by running all cold water faucets in their home for one minute.  Automatic ice makers can be flushed by making three batches of ice and discarding each batch.  Water softeners should be run through a regeneration cycle.

  1. City of Brenham residence need answers!
    The city officials are not going to release the truth about what happened with the water. Yes there were well over 500 leaks at residence also over 10 water main leaks. But what they won’t tell you is the water towers ran out of water because of some problems that were over looked. Not being ready for the storm. There were generator issues and some other problems. Which should have been prevented from maintenance and upkeep. The city should have never ran out of water and someone should be held accountable for it. Sadly the workers will be blamed and not the ones at city hall. Some changes need to be made at city hall and that starts at the top. All your going to get is excuses from them to cover it up. Mistakes happen just own up to it and tell the citizens the truth.
