Boil Water Notice Issued For Part Of Cottage Hill After Water Main Break

September 18, 2019


A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for Highway 95A from Williams Ditch Road to Eden Lane, and Neal Road to Phalrose Lane.

A water main at Neal Road and Highway 95A was breached by a gas company, according to Cottage Hill Water Works.

The water main has been repaired but as a precaution Cottage Hill Water Works advises that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient, or as an alternative bottled water may be used.

This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.

    Nice to know this a day after the notice went out. Thanks for notifying your customers, Cottage Hill. I’ve been drinking it for a whole day sooo I guess it’s fine bc I’m still here. Lol. Good to know.

    It would sure be nice if Cottage Hill Water would notify it’s customers in the case of boil water notices. It’s not enough that they only post it on their website. Most of us who use the website only visit it once a month to make a payment. I was notified late last night by a non-resident that it was on Not acceptable.

    BTW, it’s a good thing we don’t rate the electrical utilities being buried like some of the fancier neighborhoods in town, or else we’d be without power more often. :)

    always have your crew spot out all underground utilities by digging a trench cross-ways from where you plan to use machinery to dig or bury more or new underground utilities. it’s a good idea to do this every so often as you progress along the roadside with your pipe, conduit, or cable laying efforts. :)
