SAN MARCOS — On June 14, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of San Marcos public water system, TX 1050001, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions that occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

  1. The pipe breakage and boil notices are being caused by private businesses–NOT public utilities.

    Every time you get a boil notice, be advised it’s because the City continues to allow private businesses to dig in our public streets in violation of well settled public law. More, the city charges these private businesses big time fees for allowing them to dig and damage our publicly owned streets for private purposes. The city does NOT own the streets, they are merely a trustee for our public property. Enjoy your boiled water !!!
