Pine Grove issues boil advisory

originally posted on January 12, 2017


PINE GROVE — A boil water advisory continues today for all Pine Grove residents, including those living in Pine Crest Village; on Hillside Drive, Oak Lane, and American Legion Boulevard up to and including Pine Hill Drive. The Pine Grove Water Department advisory states the water system may be at an increased risk for microbial contamination.

On Tuesday, repairs were made to the water line at Pine Hill Drive. A loss in water pressure is a signal of the existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through back-flow by back-pressure or back-siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance that the water may contain disease-causing organisms.

Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Residents should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice.
