UPDATE: Boil order has been lifted

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Area residents can use the faucet again.

At approximately 1:15 p.m., Thursday, City of Brazil Utilities officials lifted the boil advisory that had been in effect since Monday for residents in Brazil, Carbon, Knightsville, Center Point and Harmony.

Earlier this week, a break in a 4-inch water line took place in front of Brazil City Hall in an area along National Avenue. Water services were shutdown at approximately 4 p.m., Monday, as a result of the break.

Employees with the Water Department finished clamping the line close to 8:10 p.m., Monday, and full service was restored at approximately 9 p.m.

Several fire hydrants in the area were also flushed.

On Monday, Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch told The Brazil Times the City Water Department clamped a service line, which also became disconnected.

However, the boil advisory went into effect.

Raubuch added samples of the water were taken Tuesday and Wednesday to ensure no contamination took place.

Sassy ~ you must have been going to the wrong places ~ many, many establishments felt prefectly at ease continuing to sell fountain drinks right through the boil order ~ wish the health department would've been performing their inspections this past week ~ they would've been surprised ~ or maybe not :)
