Precautionary Boil Water Advisories Issued For Two Areas
Precautionary boil water advisories were issued today for two areas. The boil water advisories were issued for the same two areas affected in late September following a similar momentary power issue at the city’s high service pump station at the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant. The advisories expire at 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.
These are “closed system” boil advisories due to a pressure drop, in contrast to advisories due to a water main break in the distribution system. Closed system pressure drops are much less likely to contaminate water than water main breaks, but the public should still follow water boil guidelines. The 1,159 customers affected by the boil advisories will receive copies delivered to their properties.
The public may experience additional closed system boil advisories over the next several months as new electrical systems for six massive new pumps are brought online as part of system-wide upgrades at the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant.
The northwest boil advisory area is bounded by the north side of Central Avenue from Corey Rd. to Holland Sylvania Rd., the east side of Holland Sylvania Rd. from Central Ave. to Sylvania Ave., the south side of Sylvania Ave. from Holland Sylvania Rd. to Corey Rd., the west side of Corey Rd. from Sylvania Ave. to Central Ave.
The east boil advisory area is bounded by the north side of Florence Ave. from East Broadway St. to Oak St., the east side of Oak St. from Florence Ave. to 1415 Oak St. (including 1313 Fairmont St.), Oaklawn Ave. from Oak St. to Akron St., Fairmont St. from Remington St. to Kedron St., Kedron St. from Remington St. to Richford St., Richford St. to East Broadway St. (including 1420, 1422, and 1424 East Broadway Rd.), the west side of East Broadway St. from Richford St. to Florence Ave.
