Staunton to be on boil order after water line relocation

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

On Saturday, the 8-inch water line at the intersection of Columbus and Monroe streets, Staunton, will be relocated as part of the storm sewer project.

According to Staunton Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch, the water service for customers living east of Monroe Street, and all customers north along Staunton Road, will be without water for approximately 4-5 hours, starting around 8 a.m.

The water service will have to be shut off during the time the line is being cut and relocated.

After water service is restored Saturday, the Town of Staunton will be under a boil water advisory.

This is a mandatory requirement by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management any time pressure within a water system drops below 20 psi.

Water Samples will be collected Monday and Tuesday, which will be taken to the State Department of Health for bacteriological testing.

As soon as satisfactory results are returned from the testing, the boil advisory will be lifted.

"At this time, we do not believe there will be any other water lines that would have to be relocated as part of the project," Raubuch told The Brazil Times.

For questions or more information, contact Staunton Town Hall at 448-1487.
