Repairs are complete and water service is slowly being restored. Customers will have periods of low water pressure while hydrants are being flushed to clear mains as quickly as possible. Customers living at high elevations will notice these pressure fluctuations more than than most.

A water main break was discovered at approximately 10:30 p.m. on February 18, 2019, on the west side of North Century Boulevard just north of Mitchell Creek near 201 N. Century Boulevard. As a precaution, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. Residents are also advised to take precautions when bathing, especially immunocompromised individuals, infants, or the elderly.
Once the break is repaired the water system will begin collecting samples to determine if the presence of e.coli bacteria exists within the water system. This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink. The anticipated date for rescinding this notice is Thursday, February 21, 2019, after 3 p.m. When we are able to lift this notice, we will post that information here.
