SHERWOOD, Ore. — As a precaution, the city of Sherwood issued a boil water advisory Tuesday for a limited number of southeastern Sherwood residents after pressure was lost in a water main.
City officials said there’s no reason to believe the city’s drinking water has been contaminated, but state law requires them to notify residents when a loss of pressure occurs in water mains.
Officials took water samples Tuesday morning to ensure there wasn’t any contamination. They said results should be available at about noon Wednesday.
They will notify residents when the boil water advisory is canceled.
