Water Division Issues Precautionary Boil Advisory For Parts Of South City

April 21, 2019 | 2 min reading time

The City Water Division has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for a portion of its service area due to low water pressure caused by a broken pipe.

The area under the precautionary boil water advisory is:

  • West of Kingshighway between Gresham and Chippewa, extending to the western City limit.
  • West of Hampton between Chippewa and Arsenal, Extending west to the City limit
  • West of Ivanhoe between Arsenal and Manchester, extending west to the City limit.

Although water has been restored to those neighborhoods, the water pressure in the affected areas has fallen below acceptable City levels, prompting the City Water Division to issue a precautionary boil water advisory.

The Water Division has not detected any contamination to the water supply and has issued the boil water advisory out of an abundance of caution.

The boil water advisory is in effect until further notice. The Water Division will analyze water samples before determining when to lift the boil water advisory. Test results will be in 24 hours.
