[ARCHIVED] Precautionary Boil Water Advisory

Boil Water Advisory

3/30/22 UPDATE: Repairs are expected to be completed around 6:00 PM on Wednesday March 30th, 2022, at which time water will be restored.

Mid Wednesday morning, March 30th, one of the City’s 6” water mains broke. The City is placing door hangers at the homes that have been impacted by this main break.

Please note: If your water was not shut off or you have not experienced low water pressure on March 30th, you are not impacted by this notice and you do not need to boil your water

City crews are actively working on repairing the broken water main. This impacts roughly 54 Customers in the following area:

  • 17 Homes
  • 2 Apartment complexes
    • 40 units
    • 6 units
  • 1 Business

Repairs are expected to be completed around 4:00 PM on Wednesday March 30th, 2022, at which time water will be restored.

Once water is restored, a precautionary boil water notice is advised for all homes impacted by the break. These homes should use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking, cooking, making ice, and brushing teeth.

  • Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute to kill bacteria and other organisms that may have been introduced into the water.
  • Let the water cool before using.
  • Tap water is safe for showering, bathing, and for other household uses including washing dishes in the dishwasher as long as the heat/sanitizing cycle and commercial dishwashing detergent are used.

Following the repair, the water main will be disinfected and flushed, and the City will take water samples to ensure safety.  The City is expecting test result on Friday March 30th, 2022. If satisfactory test results are received, the precautionary boil water notice will be lifted. Impacted homes will also be notified by door hangers.

If you experience brown water, please flush your water lines by running the water in a bathtub or faucet until the water runs clear.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Protecting your health and safety is our highest priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call 360-417-4800 or email publicworks@cityofpa.us. For weekend and after 5:00pm after-hours answering service, please call 360-417-4726.
