CFPUA has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for three residential customers and three commercial customers in the 4400 and 4500 blocks of Park Avenue following the completion of repairs on a leaking water main.
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. They also 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.
Work had resulted in overnight road closures on Kerr Avenue, but the repairs are now complete and no further road closures are anticipated.
