8/18/2023 - Boil Water Notice - Highland Horizon & Enclave @ Highland Horizon - RESCINDED


Brushy Creek MUD - Highland Horizon and Enclave @ Highland Horizon


August 19, 2023

On August 18, 2023 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Brushy Creek MUD public water system, PWS2460061 to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which 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.

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 and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of August 19. 2023

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Shean Dalton at s.dalton@bcmud.org 512-255-7871 ext. 211

What do do after a Boil Water Notice 

August 18, 2023

Out of an abundance of caution Brushy Creek MUD is issuing a boil water notice, Brushy Creek MUD water towers remain full to near full, and distribution system has no indication of a pressure loss; however, the District received a number of calls from Highland Horizon and Enclave at Highland Horizon Residents reporting they experienced a loss of pressure, which has now returned, or are experiencing a loss of pressure.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions. 

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making, should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes and cooled prior to human consumption. In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from other suitable sources.

CDC Boil Water Advisory

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the District will notify customers and the boil water notice will be rescinded.

Please share this information with those who may not have received this notice directly (apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. 

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Customer Service 512-255-7871 or csr@bcmud.org.  As we currently do not have an estimated time for collecting and independently testing of water quality, we recommend gathering two gallons of potable water for every member of your household for a 72-hour period.
