03/03/2017 3:58 PM
Spencer Municipal Utilities (SMU) has received calls from several customers regarding a boil advisory.
There is currently a drinking water advisory issued for 35 customers on Fairview Avenue, 7th Avenue East, East 14th Street, East 15th Street and East 16th Street that we recommend those customers boil water before using for drinking or using an alternative source. All of those customers have been notified of the drinking water advisory in their area due to a water main break yesterday.
Earlier this week there a couple other drinking water advisories issued for over 40 customers also due to water main breaks that have been fixed, samples have been collected and the advisory has been lifted for those customers.
We are required to issue a drinking water advisory if there is the potential for bacterial contamination due to Iowa Department of Natural Resources guidelines. SMU will notify customers in the event of a drinking water advisory. We also post this information on our website at www.smunet.net
SMU is a leading provider of cable, internet, and telephone service in the Spencer community and has been providing water since 1886 and electric services since 1901.
