Scheduled water main shutdown will require boil order in Goshen


GOSHEN — The City of Goshen is performing a scheduled water main shutdown to relocate and repair a fire hydrant from 3 a.m. until 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management requires the water utility to issue a boil water order for the affected area: On Second Street from Pike to Wilkinson and On Pike from 3rd to 2nd streets.

After removal of the fire hydrant, two consecutive water samples will be taken and analyzed for the presence of bacteria. If two consecutive tests pass, the boil order will be lifted. Notice of the boil order cancellation will be distributed via a customer flier and a notice will be posted in The Goshen News.  For further information or to report specific service concerns, please call Mindy Kyle at the Goshen Water Department at 534-5306.

City water within the affected area should not be consumed without first following prescribed boiling procedures. 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 rinse with boiled or bottled water.
