No water contamination for BBP
No water contamination for BBP.
A boil advisory issued mid-week for BBP Water customers west of Spencer should be lifted Saturday.
The first set of lab results from Friday morning came back negative.
The precaution was taken by the local non-profit water company in the event customers did encounter contamination at the tap, but BBP Water General Manager Dan Dalton said the precaution was just that, a precaution and not due to any known contaminants.
"As soon as we get the second lab results we will ask 97.7 radio to do an all clear as well as on our web page, social media, and automated calls," he said.
A 3 a.m. water break last Wednesday came at the most inopportune time for BBP, as the water company had just drained a water tower in the impacted service area for routine maintenance the day prior.
Dalton said the main break caused a heavier strain on a portion of the system and led to the precaution taken to advise customers residing in the areas of Patricksburg and Bowling Green they may want to let their water run and boil it if they notice anything out of normal.
