Because the main water system lost pressure due to a main line break near the Shitike River crossing – there is an increased chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter the water.
YOU SHOULD BRING TAP WATER TO A ROLLING BOIL. BOIL FOR ONE MINUTE AND COOL BEFORE USING. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and preparing food UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Repairs to the 14 inch water main break will begin in the morning (11/6/18) and should be completed within 24 hours. It will take an additional 5-6 hours for the water system to recharge.
Again There is a Boil Water notice in effect due to the loss of pressure in the Agency Water System. This notice is a safety precaution. This applies to all residences and business in the Warm Springs Agency Area, Upper Dry Creek and Sunnyside.
