Boil order lifted

Friday, May 29, 2009

Water is ready to come straight from the tap.

According to a press release sent out by the City of Brazil, the boil order for water customers in Brazil, Carbon, Center Point, Harmony and Knightsville was lifted approximately 2:30 p.m., Friday.

Brazil water utility customers were temporarily without water late Monday and into early Tuesday after an 18-inch water main broke about a half-mile west of the well fields in Putnam County. The wells feed the water into the City of Brazil's Water Distribution Plant.

Water services were restored at about 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, but because the city's water supply in the two ground storage tanks and the elevated storage tank, and pressures were low, forcing officials to call for a boil order.

The Brazil City Water Department took samples of the water to the State Board of Health Wednesday and Thursday, both of which came back negative for contaminants, allowing for the boil order to be lifted.

The Town of Center Point sent its own samples to be tested, which also did not have contamination.
