|Who Was Contacted:||Levi Tickner|
|Details:||Levi called at 7:30 am to report that a main break from the plant had occurred the previous night and 50 homes were out of water. He was familiar with the process, and customers had been notified, pressure had already been restored and they were in the process of flushing and sampling. the chlorine residual remained normal in other parts of the system.
Lifted 03/29/2021: Bill spoke with Levi. The boil advisory can be lifted. They got passing samples back yesterday, and they maintained a good chlorine residual the entire time. It started as an attempt to repair a leak at a service connection on a section of A/C pipe, but they encountered difficulties and had to shut down a section of the distribution system to reduce pressure in the pipe so they could complete the repair.
