City of Fenton Announces BOIL WATER ADVSORY

 

Five businesses served by Fenton city water on South Fenway Avenue between 250 S. Fenway and 555 S. Fenway are advised to boil drinking or cooking water for at least the next 48 hours. The City's water distribution system has experienced a watermain valve break on S. Fenway Avenue.

 

An 8-inch water main valve on S. Fenway Avenue was discovered broken on Wednesday. City crews made the necessary repairs, however, in the process they had to depressurize the system. During the repair water customers in this area experienced low pressure or possibly no pressure during this time.

 

Because there is a risk for contaminants to siphon their way back into a water distribution system when that portion of the system loses pressure, public health officials advise water customers in the affected area to boil the water until water tests are performed. These tests take a minimum of 48 hours to complete.

 

The boil water advisory affects the businesses at 250 S. Fenway, 255 S. Fenway, 300 S. Fenway, 380 S. Fenway, and 555 S. Fenway. All affected businesses have been notified. 

 

THE BOIL WATER ORDER DOES NOT AFFECT ANY OTHER AREAS OF THE COMMUNITY.

 

If you are affected by the boil water order you should vigorously boil water for one minute before using it for drinking or cooking. If you can't boil the water, use bottled water. After 48 hours, check with City of Fenton (810-629-2261), the Fenton Water Plant (810-714-0528), the Fenton Police Department (810-629-5311), or the city's website or Facebook page to see if the boil water order has been lifted.
