SMU is contacting 20 addresses in West Spencer due to a loss of pressure in the area. These customers have received details on a drinking water advisory due to the potential chance of bacterial contamination. Once samples are verified to be bacteriologically safe, those customers will be re-notified when the advisory is lifted. It will take approximately 48 hours (during normal business hours) for us to have results once the repair has been made.
All SMU water customers who are not in the 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.
The addresses in the advisory are limited to:
101, 109, 112, 115, 120, 121, 201, 205, 208, 209, 212, 213, 218, 219 West 6th Street
115, 206, 212 West 7th Street
514, 606 2nd Avenue West
520 3rd Avenue West
