BOIL ORDER: New Street residents to be under boil order starting Wednesday

A boil order has been issued for homes along New Street in Goshen starting Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Goshen utility crews will be shutting down the water main for that area from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then hooking the system up to a new water main.

The state requires city officials to issue a water boil order for the affected area. Residents in the affected area should not drink the water without boiling it first. However, the water is OK to use for showers, baths, laundry and flushing toilets. The water is OK for dishwasher use if the dishwasher has a sanitizing cycle. If not, dishes should be rinsed with boiled or bottled water.

After the hook up of the new water main, two consecutive water samples will need to be taken and analyzed for bacteria. If they pass, the boil order will be lifted.

To determine if the boil order is lifted, residents in that area will receive a flier on their door and it will be in the newspaper.

For more information, call Mindy at 534-5306.
