BOIL WATER NOTICE FOR SOME CITY OF MOULTRIE WATER CUSTOMER15 Mar, 2023
PUBLIC ADVISORY – BOIL WATER NOTICE FOR SOME CITY OF MOULTRIE WATER CUSTOMERS
Due to a 12-inch water main break early this morning, the City of Moultrie was forced to isolate and drain a section of water main in order to make necessary repairs. This caused some water customers to lose water supply. At this time, much of the area has had service restored. As the water main supply is replenished, a potential health hazard may exist in areas that experienced zero pressure. Water of unknown quality from backflow and/or back-siphonage may have entered into the water distribution system.
The City of Moultrie will be flushing the repaired section of the water main. However, all citizens that have experienced water outages 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.
Thank you for your understanding throughout this emergency repair situation.
If you have any questions, please call the City of Moultrie Utilities at 229-668-6000.
