A water main broke on Forrest Street on Wednesday, April 28, night. A boil order is in effect immediately for residents in the Stonegate housing area. Anyone in this housing area who has no water or low water pressure should boil their water before use until further notice.

Anyone served by the affected public water system should observe the following precautions:

Boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.

Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes) by immersing them for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.

Dispose of ice cubes and remake with water that has been boiled.

Continue boiling all water that is to be used for cooking or drinking until the cause of the contamination has been found and corrected.

Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.
