GOSHEN — Goshen officials have issued a boil water order for residents/businesses along Olive Street from Center Street to Lincoln Avenue and Mercer Avenue from North Ninth Street to Olive Street.
Utility crews shut down a water main to replace broken water valves at 7 this morning.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management requires that the utility issue a boil water order for the affected area.
After the water valves are replaced, two consecutive water samples will need to be taken and analyzed for the presence of bacteria. If those tests pass, the boil order will be lifted.
Notice of the cancellation will be distributed through a customer flier and through The Goshen News.
For more information or to report specific service concerns, contact Mindy Kyle at the Goshen Water Department at 534-5306.
Water should not be consumed unless boiled as instructed by utility officials. The water remains safe for bathing, laundry and restroom facilities. Cleaning dishes with a dishwasher is acceptable if it has a sanitizing cycle. Hand-washed dishes should be rinsed with boiled or bottled water.
