Gold Hill Residents Want Answers After Another Boil Advisory Issued
Originally posted on November 23, 2016
Another water boil advisory is impacting residents of Gold Hill. This comes after another water main broke Thursday afternoon in an alley between 4th and 5th streets and Fredenburg and Estramado.
The pipes are very old and fragile and have been springing leaks during recent work on sewage lines.
A Gold Hill Facebook group put up a post asking for volunteers to help pass out flyers. Residents were also notified by phone, and the city encourages people to sign up for emergency alerts on the Jackson County website.
Gold Hill Resident Cathy Courtney says, “I can’t even count the number of times it has happened. You get ready to brush your teeth but you can’t. You have to go and get some bottled water. It is a pain in the rear end.”
The city says they hope to have the issue resolved in 72 hours, but for now water is available at City Hall.
