Breaking News: City of Valdosta Water Customers Asked To Boil WaterJan 22nd, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Uncategorized
The following is a press release from The City of Valdosta, Georgia. We have also learned that some restaurants could be closed today. It could be a good time to stay in Madison and eat at local restaurants.
Residents are asked to avoid the use of any city water at this time. Any water that is currently left in the lines or that becomes available once water services are restored, should be boiled first before use.
Residents are advised to bring water to a boil for at least one minute, and cool before using, or use bottled water.
Water should be boiled for uses such as drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation. Boiling the water kills bacteria and other potential organisms.
This Boil Water Advisory is in effect until further notice.
Crews are working diligently to restore water services as quickly as possible. Updates will continue to be posted to the City of Valdosta website at www.valdostacity.com, or citizens may call the city’s Utilities Department to receive additional information and updates at (229) 259-3592
