Boil order lifted

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Water customers for Brazil, Carbon, Center Point, Knightsville and Harmony have been under a boil order since Sunday.

The order was enacted after a 12-inch water main broke at Pinckley and Walnut streets. The line was clamped late Sunday evening.

According to Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch, the boil order was lifted for customers in Brazil, Carbon and Center Point at approximately 3 p.m., Thursday.

Raubuch told The Brazil Times a large hole was found in the bottom of the 12-inch line, necessitating the repairs.

According to Raubuch, two 24-hour back-to-back tests of water samples had to be conducted by the Indiana State Department of Health. Both tests came back satisfactory.

Despite the boil order being lifted, water customers in Knightsville and Harmony are still under a boil order due to the installation of a new 10-inch main line being placed.

Raubuch told The Times the line was fixed Wednesday, but the boil order for customers in the two towns may be extended through the weekend.

Water for Knightsville and Harmony customers was shut down at approximately 9 a.m., Wednesday, for the installation of the new line.
