Terlingua Recycles
Terlingua has a recycling station just behind Terlingua EMS. We collect cardboard, tin, aluminum, and plastic. A few helpful reminders: make sure your tin/ aluminum/ plastic containers are clean. Please crush your plastic cartons as much as possible - makes room for more in the bin.  The cardboard bin is very full right now. If you could hold off until we make a run at the end of the month, it would be much appreciated.Volunteers are always welcome, especially the last Thursday of the month when we make our run into the main recycling center in Big Bend National Park. For more info, message us on Facebook (Terlingua Recycles) or call 830-739-6986

Bebe is a purebred red Chihuahua who weighs 5 pounds. Previously, she had one eye removed. We don't know the story on that but having only one eye doesn't seem to slow her down one teeny tiny bit. Bebe wants to be your shadow, sit in your lap, and snuggle. When held, she wags her little tail against your tummy... She's delighted by attention and gives gentle kisses. Bebe is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all shots. For more information about Bebe or any animal at the Alpine Animal Shelter, email

ATTENTION SOUTH BREWSTER COUNTY RESIDENTS: A water pump on the Study Butte/ Terlingua public water supply is inoperable, possibly due to a lightning strike. Sheriff Dodson, Judge Cano, Commissioner Garrett, and Fire Chief Henington are working to fix the issue. It could take as long as two weeks to resolve the problem. Residents are urged to limit water use during this time.

Due to a loss of pressure on the lines, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, PWS ID 0220035, to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. The 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 another suitable source.
Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
If a customer wishes to reach TCEQ, they may call 512.239.4691
If you have questions regarding this matter you may contact:

Debido a una pérdida de presión en las líneas, la Comisión de Calidad Ambiental de Texas (TCEQ) ha requerido que nuestro sistema de agua, PWS ID 0220035, notifique a todos los clientes que hervan su agua antes de su consumo.
Para asegurar la destrucción de todas las bacterias dañinas y otros microbios, el agua para beber, cocinar y hacer hielo debe ser hervida y enfriada antes del consumo. El agua debe llevarse a una ebullición vigorosa y luego se hierve durante dos minutos. En lugar de hervir, usted puede comprar agua embotellada o obtener agua de otra fuente adecuada.
Nuestro sistema ha tomado las acciones correctivas necesarias para restaurar la presión adecuada, los niveles de desinfectante y / o la calidad bacteriológica.
Cuando ya no sea necesario hervir el agua, los funcionarios del sistema de agua le notificarán que el agua es segura para el consumo. Las instrucciones para interrumpir la ebullición se emitirán de la misma manera que este aviso.
Si un cliente desea llegar a TCEQ, puede llamar al 512.239.4691
Si tiene preguntas sobre este asunto, puede comunicarse con:
Jason Blanton, operador licenciado
