Urgent Notice - Water Update
Apr 18 2019 - 04:53:00 pm

PALESTINE, Texas (April 18, 2019)
Due to damage sustained during last night’s storms our Water Treatment Plant is not operable at the moment.

This is what you need to know:
1) There is no water available for home use or for drinking. If you still have water YOU MUST BOIL IT at least three minutes before drinking.
2) Porta-potties will be available at the following locations:

  1. Reagan Park
  2. Willie Myers Park
  3. City Hall parking lot
  4. Civic Center
  5. 3215 W. Oak
  6. 611 Avenue A (Fire Station 1)
  7. 107 7th Street (Fire Station 2)
  8. 518 Benbrook (Fire Station 3)

Drinking water will be provided later this evening on a limited basis per household. As soon as we have the water on site (to be determined) you will be notified.

3) Please look after the elderly and the very young to make sure they are provided the necessary water.

We will continue to work throughout the night and in the morning until services are restored. We will provide updates via social media, news outlets and our Code Red system. We appreciate your patience as we work to get everything restored.
