Boil Water Advisory issued for Lancaster County neighborhood after water main break
Read more below: On 05/10/17 at 3:00pm, the City of Lancaster Water Department has issued a boil water advisory for customers because of a main break due to a contractor drilling through our water main on 05/10/17.
This notice is for customers in the area: South of Millport Road to Pioneer Road, from Gypsy Hill Road to Strasburg Pike.
The City of Lancaster Water System may be at an increased risk from microbial contamination due to a drop/loss of water pressure within a part of the distribution system.
Typically, a drop/loss of water pressure is the result of a pipeline break or a pump failure.
Although there is no direct evidence that the water is unsafe, there is a pronounced increased chance that disease-causing organisms could enter the water distribution system.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.
These symptoms, however, are not caused only by organisms in drinking water, but also by other factors.
We will inform you when the situation is corrected and tests confirm the water is safe to drink.
