Residents in the affected locations are cautioned to BOIL ALL WATER BEFORE CONSUMING beginning at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow.  Residents will be notified when the boil water notice is lifted.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and for making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption.  The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.   When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you.

City crews will be replacing water valves and must turn off the water in order to complete the work.  Bryce Avenue, from Evergreen Drive to Florence Road, will be closed from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow so that crews may access the water line.   Once the valve installations are complete, the line will be flushed and water samples will be tested.
