boil-water-notice

The City of Asheville Water Resources Department had these emergency water interruptions late last week:

  • NOW LIFTED: On Avondale Road from Gashes Creek Road to Bee Ridge Road.
  • NOW LIFTED: From 11 Old Charlotte Highway to the dead end of Old Charlotte Highway also to include Gashes Creek Road.

 

These interruptions of water required issuance of a Boil Water Advisory.

 

Customers were encouraged to vigorously boil tap water for 1 minute before consuming it. City staff  performed laboratory testing and the advisory will be lifted when tests confirm the possibility of risk is not present. Customers received notification that the advisory has been lifted via the same communication process as this advisory.

When water systems experience low pressure or lose pressure, there is an increased risk of contamination. This does not mean that the water is contaminated, but that the possibility exists.

 

Once pressure returns, there is the possibility that some discolored water or air could be present in the lines. Customers are advised to run cold water for 5-10 minutes or until water is clear.

Properties in the affected areas are receiving this notification via the COA automated system or door hangers.

 

Citizens may register for automated alerts by clicking on AVL Alert link on the City’s website.
