PORT BOLIVAR — The Bolivar Peninsula Special Utility District is advising customers to boil water before consuming it.

The boil notice is a result of a waterline break between Winnie and High Island

The district said people should until further notice boil water used for such things as drinking, cooking and making ice.

Water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

For more information call (409) 684-3515.

Isn't this the 2nd to 3rd time. What about a water tower being placed over there? They should have the same benefits as us living on the island. It is not like they are miles away for civilian life.

They'll probably get thirsty before a tower could be built. [beam]
