Cottage Hill Boil Water Notice Lifted For Area Including Jim Allen Elementary

February 27, 2018

Cottage Hill Water Works  has lifted a boil water notice put into place last week due to a broken water main.

The boil water notice was issued last Thursday after natural gas pipeline crew hit a water main. The accident left the area bounded by Neal Road, Wellline Road and Highway 29 without water temporarily, including Jim Allen Elementary School.

The utility said the water main has been repaired and bacteriological sampling showed the water to be safe to drink.

The Escambia County School District provided bottled water and hand sanitizer to students at Jim Allen Elementary during the boil water notice.
