Line repaired; boil order still intact

Monday, August 6, 2012

Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch
The 12-inch main that broke Sunday has been repaired, but Brazil and surrounding areas will still be under a boil order until further notice.

According to Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch, the line was fixed late Sunday night.

"We secured the line last night," Raubuch said. "We found the large hole in the bottom of the 12-inch line, and they repaired that. We should be OK, the water towers are full again, (but) we are on a boil order until further notice."

Raubuch said for the boil order to be lifted, two 24-hour back-to-back tests of water samples have to be conducted first.

"We're going to be drawing samples Tuesday and Wednesday, and hopefully we will know something Thursday," Raubuch said.

As of now Brazil, Carbon, Center Point, Knightsville and Harmony water customers are subject to the boil order.

Raubuch added Knighstville and Harmony water customers will have their water shut off at 9 a.m., until late afternoon, Wednesday, for the installation of a new 10-inch main.

He said because of the work being done, Knightsville and Harmony's boil order

might extend a "little longer."

Raubuch said he appreciated everyone's patience during this inconvenience.

"We thank everybody for their cooperation and patience during the break," Raubuch said.

It's 5 pm any idea when we will have water in the Knightsville area?
