Update 2: River Street Boil Water Advisory Lifted

Original post (October 14th, 2021 | 3:27 pm):
As a result of a water-main break, water customers living on River Street are now under a boil-water advisory. The earliest this advisory can be lifted will be Saturday, depending how quickly repairs proceed and a sample may be taken. We will post updates as more information is available.
Water system employees are working to restore service as quickly as possible. Estimated time of repair is before midnight tonight.
Boil-water advisories are issued out of an abundance of caution because positive pressure has been lost and the possibility of contamination exists, not because contamination has been detected. Detection of contamination requires analysis by an independent lab. For more information about what to do under a boil-water advisory, click here.
Notification will be sent out when the boil water advisory is lifted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience during this time.
