[ARCHIVED] Boil Water Notice Issued After Water Main Break

Boil water advisory issued

Earlier today, June 14, a major water main break occurred and caused system pressures to drop below acceptable levels in certain areas. A boil water notice is therefore being issued for all addresses on the following streets: Longcope Loop, Philo Street, Turkey Hollow Circle, Reimer Avenue, James Street, Dees Street, Suttles Avenue, Laurel Hill Road, Willow Creek Circle, Rolling Oaks, Cedar Park, Corrie Court, Oak Haven, Mountain Drive, Stagecoach, Mountainview Drive, Missy Lane, Snyder Hill, Colleen Court, Willow Ridge, Ridge Crest.
As a precaution, once water service is restored you may want to boil your water prior to consumption. This is a precautionary measure and does not necessarily mean that your water is contaminated, only that there is a possibility of contamination due to lack of pressure in the main lines for an extended period.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and ice making can 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 wish to purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. 
Satisfactory water quality test results should be received by Tuesday, June 15th at 5:00 PM.  At that time, no further precautionary measures are needed.  You will not receive another notice, unless the boil advisory is extended past this date and time. 
If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact the Water/Wastewater Utilities office at 512.393.8010.
