On 5/15/2019, a water service was damaged on Rippon Street and the water shut off causing a drop in water pressure warranting a boil water advisory on parts of Rippon Street.  Addresses on Rippon St. from 53-87 will be effected with the exception of 58, which is already on the new water main.  Therefore, a boil water notice will be in effect until two consecutive 24 hour tests come back clear.  Water for consumption or cooking should be boiled for at least 15 minutes.  Bathing and washing clothes should not cause any problems.  The boil water notice will be in effect for as little as 48 hours after the first water sample is taken but may take longer.  Flushing a hose bib outside your home after flow is re-established until clear will aid in the clearing of your household lines.  Notice of the lifting of the boil water will be delivered to each address involved.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
