URGENT: Fast food area on south side of Goshen under boil order

GOSHEN — Goshen city utilities crews are performing an emergency water main shutdown today (Monday, July 22, 2013) to correct damage to a city water main on the southeast side of the city.

The affected area includes both side of Lincolnway East from Burger King, 1911 Lincolnway East, south to Eisenhower Drive North.

The boil water order will not be lifted until after the repair has been made and two consecutive water samples have been taken, analyzed for bacteria and pass, according to utility officials.

Notice of the boil order cancellation will be distributed through a customer flier and a notice will be posted with The Goshen News.

For more information or to report specific concerns, call Mindy Kyle at the Goshen Water Department at 534-5306.

City water within the affected area should not be consumed without first following proper 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 rinsed with boiled or bottled water.
