“Water service will be returned upon completion of the work being conducted,” said James Proctor, PCU superintendent.
“Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system,” said Proctor.
Therefore, consumers in the affected area are advised to boil all water used for human consumption – including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation – or use bottled water until this advisory is lifted. This advisory will be in effect for a minimum of 24 hours.
Vigorous boiling for 1- minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
