BOIL WATER ORDER IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS OF E. JOHN and E. TRUMAN
Newberry, MI –The water outage scheduled to begin Monday, October 19 at 8:00 a.m. is now complete and a boil water order is now in effect. The water was turned off at the main to allow for the repair of a water valve at the intersection of East Truman and Vulcan Street. Addresses affected were 401 East John to 418 East John and 401 East Truman to 427 East Truman. Water was off for about 45 minutes.
Drop in pressure requires boiling water at the listed addresses after the water is turned back on. Therefore, a boil water order is now in effect until two (2) consecutive 24-hour tests come back clear. Water for consumption or cooking should be boiled for at least 15 minutes. Bathing and washing clothes should not cause any problems.
The boil water order is in effect for a minimum of 48 hours after the first water sample is taken but may take longer. The first water sample will be delivered for testing the morning of Tuesday, October 20. The current estimated timeframe of the boil order is through the morning of Friday, October 23. Flushing a hose bib outside your home after flow is re-established, till clear, will aid in the clearing of your household lines.
Boil order lift notices will be hand delivered to the affected addresses.
Questions should be directed to 906-293-5681. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our residents.
