Portion of Brazil under boil order

Monday, February 20, 2012

Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch
According to Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubach, a section of the city is under a boil order.

"The boil advisory is just for people from County Road 200 to 300 on the south side of State Road 340, and then everybody from CR 300 West, a little past 425," Raubach said, "so all those people on both sides of the road (are under a boil order)."

Raubach added Northview High School and North Clay Middle School are exempt from the boil order because it is on a separate line.

Raubach said the boil order stems from a line that was cut into by a resident doing personal work.

"(The person) had cut into a 4-inch water line that runs on the south side of 340," Raubach said. "Somebody was doing some personal work out there, and we had to shut the line down (because) there are several people on that line out there, and we didn't feel comfortable not having a boil order."

Raubach said tests have to be conducted Tuesday and Wednesday, because the protocol calls for 24-hour back-to-back tests, and his office should know something by Thursday afternoon.

Raubach said his office has been working hard to lift the boil order.

"(We are) working toward getting (those affected) off the boil advisory," Raubach said. "The men (who worked on the broken line) did a very good job, and had it back up pretty quick."
