Work starting Tuesday evening by CFPUA contractors to replace broken water valves may result in periods of low water pressure or outages for about 100 customers.
As a precaution, a boil water advisory is being issued starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 17, for customers in the following areas:
- 500, 600, 700 blocks of Red Cross Street.
- 500, 600, 700 blocks of N. 7th Street.
- 600, 700 blocks of Campbell Street.
- 700 block of Hanover Street.
- 500, 600, 700 blocks of North 8th Street.
CFPUA will issue notifications when the advisory is lifted.
Periods of low or no pressure in the water distribution system increase the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
When under a boil water advisory, customers are asked to boil their water for one minute, then allow it to cool prior to consumption. Alternatively, they may use another water source such as bottled water.
Consumption includes drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, fruit and vegetable washing, pet consumption, and the preparation of baby formula. Customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
Before a boil water advisory is lifted, CFPUA lab staff test the water to ensure it is safe to drink.
