BOIL WATER ADVISORY #2

CITY OF MAYSVILLE

BOIL WATER NOTICE

As you may have noticed, the City of Maysville is in the process of replacing ageing water lines throughout the water system. In order to connect the new water lines to the existing system the City and its Contractor will have to temporarily turn off the water along North Main (from Clay Street to end), Fair Street (from Ellison to Cemetery Street), Jackson Street, Wilson Street, Church Street (from Clay Street to Wilson Street), and 10-14 Homer Street on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 between the hours of 8:00am to 4:00pm.

Turning off the water will lower the water pressure in the above mentioned area below minimum required pressures. 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. Unfortunately, this is sometimes unavoidable.

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, ice, 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 the City of Maysville 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.

 

If you have any questions please call City Hall at (706) 652-2274
