Update 02/22/2023:  The boil order went into effect at approximately 9:00 AM this morning (Feb. 21) and the crew is expecting to get the first samples down to the lab this morning (Feb. 22). The affected area remains the same. The operator received a call from a customer adjacent to the area who reported his water had been shutoff as well. The crew was contacted and confirmed that one of the main line valves in the system was turned and caused a temporary shutoff to that home that was subsequently restored shortly after the report. The repairs were completed by 1:30 PM. The crew indicated they would also be checking into the valves in the area to ensure all are turned correctly to avoid inadvertent interruptions for future work.
