Water Main Break Leads to Grovetown Boil Advisory

Author

Date

The City of Grovetown has issued a boil water advisory due to a water main break. 

The break is on 104 2nd Avenue, and the areas affected are on 101 East Robinson Ave. and the entire 100 Block of 2nd Avenue, according to a press release from the city. The city is concerned that this break is causing water pressure to decrease in parts of the water system. 

“The advisory is being issued out of an abundance of caution,” said Ashley Campbell, public information officer for the city, in the press release. “There is the potential a health hazard may exist due to microbial contamination in these areas without positive pressure.” 

To avoid any potential health hazards, the city is warning residents that have experienced power outages or low water pressures to use only boiled tap water for drinking, cooking or preparing food. 

The advisory is in effect until the City of Grovetown has completed testing to ensure there is no further public health concern. The public will be notified immediately once the advisory is lifted, and residents are further advised to flush all faucets for at least two minutes before using to drink or prepare food.
