On 9/14/2021-9/15/2021 we experienced a loss of pressure in our water system due to two unexpected water main breaks. A loss of water pressure means that contamination could have entered our drinking water distribution system. There is an increased chance that the drinking water may contain bacteria that could make you sick. The affected area includes homes along the following streets: Janet Marie Lane, Debi Lei Drive, Diane Loreli Lane, Bluebird Court, Bluffview Drive, Lohse Drive, and west of address 530 West Burns Valley Road
We are taking the following steps to correct the problem: We are disinfecting, flushing the mains, and taking Bacteria samples to make sure water is safe to drink. We will let you know when tests show the water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We expect to resolve the problem within four days or less.
Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.
