(WANE)- There are questions swirling about the way City Utilities handled a problem with Fort Wayne’s water following Friday’s boil water advisory.
However, the city did not issue a boil water advisory until 3:15 p.m. Friday.
Some customers questioned why it took so long for the city to announce the boil advisory.
Sneed issued the following statement: “It is standard practice to issue a Boil Order Advisory when pressure drops below 20 psi.
Ft. Wayne notified us when they found out of the pressure drop around 8:20 a.m. Their response was as quick as possible.
They sent out the boil order advisory through several different venues, including text, email, radio and TV.” Frank Suarez of City Utilities said the boil water advisory was only issued out of an abundance of caution.
Further testing, through the weekend, proved that to be the case,” said Suarez.
