BOIL WATER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT!!
Posted : 9/23/2009
Due to the severe weather and flooding that we have experienced, several water mains throughout the County have been damaged by the flooding along with the roadways of the County. The Water System has experienced a loss of water pressure and/or very low pressure in several areas of the County.
Therefore, as a precaution, if citizens experience a water supply outage or low water pressure, the Paulding County Water System advises that all water be “boiled” prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food in order to protect from a potential health hazard. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil, let it cool, and store it in clean containers with covers. An alternative to boiling would be to use only bottled water for consumption.
If boiling water is not feasible or bottled water is unavailable, then emergency disinfection of drinking water should be considered. Water disinfection procedures can be found on the United States Environmental Protection Agency website at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/faq/emerg.html
This "Boil Water Notice" will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
Also, residents are requested to reduce water usage inside the home as much as possible until repairs are completed.
If you have any questions you may contact Michael Carter, Paulding County Water System at 770-222-6850 or Christine Santonil, Paulding County Water System at 770-222-6868.
