Boil Advisory | 401-415 Haven Way | LIFTED

September 16, 2020

UPDATE (Sept. 17, 2020): The boil water advisory is lifted. ——– BOIL WATER ADVISORY 401-415 Haven Way September 16, 2020 UPDATE (11:57 a.m.): The water main is repaired. Residents will experience low water pressure until it builds back up. Boil water advisory is still in effect. Affected residents will be hand delivered notices when the advisory is lifted. ——– A water main break in the 400-block of Haven Way caused water pressure to drop to dangerously low levels. A potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system. In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. The advisory will be active approximately 24 hours for testing to be completed. Notices will be hand delivered to affected residents. Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by their drinking water utility that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.

Let’s celebrate our colorful community of Perry while participating independently in artistic activities! We will be hosting free interactive art activities that everyone can enjoy safely on their own schedule! Additionally, we will also be hosting fun contests and giveaways, so make plans to get creative with us!   Activity #1: The Chalk Walk Visit the Weeletka and White Tail Trail System in Perry from Friday, September 11th through Sunday, September 13th to participate in a community-wide chalk walk! Artists of all ages and abilities are invited to select a “rectangle” on the trail to chalk a design of their choice, then take a walk along the trail to see the designs that others have made! Please only design within the designated “rectangle” space, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. A limited amount of chalk will be made available along the trail, however artists are strongly encouraged to bring their own chalk. This is a family event. Artwork containing profanity or any content deemed vulgar, derogatory, controversial or otherwise inappropriate by the City will be removed. The Weeletka Trail and White Tail Trail systems can be accessed at either 650 General Courtney Hodges Boulevard or 1107 Creekwood Drive (Perry, GA, 31069).

Popular hiding spots include parks, playgrounds and near businesses (with permission). Please be mindful of the environment and do not attach anything to the rocks, as there is no guarantee that it will stay on and not become litter or a swallowing hazard for children or wildlife. We encourage you to hide your rock within Perry. Please do not hide rocks in National or State Parks or on private property without obtaining permission.
