[ARCHIVED] Update: Boil water advisory lifted for about 250 customers near Shipyard Boulevard

Work zone traffic sign

A boil water advisory has been rescinded for about 250 customers in an area along Shipyard Boulevard.

The advisory was issued Sunday as a precaution while crews worked to repair broken valves.

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.
