Water customers of Maple Hill Water & Sewer District in the area of Wooten Road from address 455-763, and all Wootena Road, Lum Drive, and John Pickett Road, will be without water from 9:30 to 11:30, today. A Pressure Advisory Notice is in effect. The water outage is so contractors can connect interconnections with ONWASA. This work is being completed for the interconnection with ONWASA water system.
Water service will be returned upon completion of the work. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Therefore, consumers in the area noted above are advised to boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation) or use bottled water until this advisory is lifted. This advisory will be in effect for a minimum of 24 hours.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water. Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
This advisory will go into effect on Thursday at 12:30 until we receive a clear Bac T-test from the lab sometime around noon on Friday 2-5-202.
On Friday, Feb. 5, the water line on Hwy 50 and Wooten Road will receive a flush which some people may see some color and sediment temporarily. This is normal and non-harmful to the customer.
