At about 9:00am this morning, Wednesday, 9/29/21, due to repairs to a broken water main valve, the water system lost water and/or pressure. When a water mains lose water and/or pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water.
Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems. But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.
Water service was restored on September 29, 2021. Samples to lift the boil water order are being taken today and tomorrow and results may be available Saturday at the earliest.
It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next few days until we receive the results of samples. You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water. Updates and future notices will be posted on the Village’s website @villageofsouthbloominggrove.com.
