PRESS RELEASE #12
March 6, 2019 – 9:10 a.m.
Yesterday evening the break in the water main was repaired and the water distribution system was re-opened. Residents should now have water service.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER.
The BOIL WATER ADVISORY will remain in effect until such time as the laboratory results verify it is safe to consume.
The State of Local Emergency remains in effect.
Now that the water distribution system is re-activated, most water lines will contain some air and water discoloration when opened. This is normal. Open taps SLOWLY and the regular steady flow will soon occur.
