Temporary Boil Water Notice


This has been one of the most challenging winter storm events in Castroville's history. Castroville Public Works employees have worked tirelessly to provide and maintain water service.
As we struggle with low pressure and frozen pipes within homes, we believe that it is in the best interest of our customers to issue a "Temporary Boil Water Notice." This cautionary measure is warranted until the region thaws. The 100 plus hours of below-freezing temperatures have caused users to have issues maintaining-above 20 PSI in portions of the distribution system. At this time, please take precautions to boil your water until you are notified by City of Castroville Public Work that you do not have to.
We apologize for the inconvenience but rest assured we are working around the clock to resolve the issues and restore full service to all our customers.
