Boil water advisory issued for areas in Fenton

The City of Fenton has issued a boil water advisory for some residents on the north side of the city after water pressure was lost Sunday due to a shutdown for the repair of a water main.

Affected areas starting from Leroy St. address 1110 to 1243. Trealout Drive including Trealout Apts. Fenton Estates Apts. Fenton Commons Condos. Appletree subdivision including Appletree Lane, swanee Beach Dr., Orchard Lake Dr. S. Long Lake Rd. Address from 2168 to 2271.

“Due to a drop in pressure in the water supply, bacterial contamination may have occurred in the water system,” states a notice on the city’s website. “Bacteria are generally not harmful and are common throughout our environment. Corrective measures are currently being undertaken to correct the situation.”

Residents in the affected area are advised that until further notice, they should not drink or consume tap water without boiling it first as that kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Only boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food.

“Once the water department gets pressure restored, water staff will be taking other remedial actions such as flushing and collecting bacteriological samples from affected parts of the system,” states the notice. “The samples will be collected to determine that the water quality meets the state drinking water standards. We will inform you when tests show no bacteria, and you no longer need to boil vour water.”

This boil water notice will remain in effect until results from the sampling verify the water is safe to drink. Two samples 24 hours apart for a total of 48 hours are required to be absent of bacteria.
