Boil Water Notice Rescinded

September 18, 2023


On September 17, 2023, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Port Arthur public water system, PWS #1230009, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions that occurred recently in the public water system that included the entire Sabine Pass community. The water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. 


The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes throughout the entire affected area and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of September 18, 2023, at 6:45 pm. 


If you have any questions concerning this matter, you may contact the City of Port Arthur Utilities Department at (409) 983-8550.
