Boiling Water and Conservation Alert for Crellin Water Customers

Last Updated on Aug 16, 2019 at 2:39pm | Economic Development
Due to a large water leak that drained the Crellin water tank earlier today, residents served by the Crellin Water system are being asked to boil water used for cooking and drinking purposes until Monday, August 19th.
You are advised to bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one (1) minute, which is sufficient to ensure the water is safe to use for cooking and drinking. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, making drinks, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills pathogens. The water should be cooled before use to prevent burns or scalding.
The water is safe to use for bathing and washing without boiling.
Customers are also being asked toconserve water until Monday, August 19th, to allow the water tank to refill.
Please direct any questions to 301-334-6976.
