BOIL WATER ADVISORY: CITY OF MOULTRIE SPENCE FIELD AREA WATER CUSTOMERS12 Oct, 2018
PUBLIC ADVISORY – BOIL WATER NOTICE FOR ALL CITY OF MOULTRIE SPENCE FIELD AREA WATER CUSTOMERS
Due to massive power outages caused by Hurricane Michael, this is causing water pressure in parts of the water system to drop to dangerously low levels. When this occurs a potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system.
In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by their drinking water utility that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.
Please continue to boil your water for the next 48 hours for drinking and cooking purposes. Thank you for your understanding as we recover from this catastrophic event.
If you have any questions, please call 229-668-6000.
