Please read below if your community is under a Boil Water Advisory (BWA):
As you may know, there has been a water outage in your area which has caused water pressure to drop to a dangerously low level. When this occurs, a potential health hazard may exist due to areas of zero pressure that could result in backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the distribution system.
In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil.
Citizens should also continue to boil their water for 48 hours after water pressure has been restored unless otherwise notified by Cumming Utilities that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.
Also, once water pressure is restored, citizens should flush their house plumbing.
Please contact Cumming Utilities at 770-781-2020 or at www.kimsoul.com for further information.
