Boil-water order for Egypt Mills in place until today

Sunday, February 3, 2013

A boil-water order has been issued for the Egypt Mills area because of low pressure in the water supply.

According to Judy Foeste, president of Public Water District No. 5, the boil-water order was issued Thursday afternoon when the low pressure was discovered. Low pressure can cause a back flow, which can contaminate the water supply, but Foeste stressed that there has been no contamination found in Egypt Mills water. The boil-water order was issued only as a precaution, she said.

The order is expected to remain in place until today. For more information, contact the water district office at 388-4800.
