Boil Water Advisory LIFTED | 200-Block of Winsted Court

January 27, 2020

UPDATE – The boil water advisory issued for the 200-block of Winsted Court is now lifted. ——— Damage to a water main in the 200-block of Winsted Court is causing 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 in effect for approximately 24 hours for testing to be completed.  An update will be sent out when the advisory is lifted. 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.
