Boil advisory issued for 35 addresses
05/17/2016 4:49 PM
SMU contacted 35 addresses located on 11th Avenue SW, 5th Street SW, 9th Avenue SW and 6th Street SW due to a water main break in the area earlier today. These customers have received details on the boil order due to the potential chance of bacterial contamination. Once samples are verified to be bacteriologically safe, those customers will be re-notified when boil advisory is lifted. It will take at least 48 hours for us to have results now that the main break has been repaired.
All SMU water customers who are not in the boil advisory area do not need to be concerned with the safety of the water despite the possible discoloration. Due to fixing the water main break and additional flushing during the process, discoloration may occur for some customers.
