Smetihport city water supply is experiencing a low pressure warning in the water supply. This could mean that a leak is in the line or the well pumps are in need of repair, or even a combination of problems. Today the borough office made a mass phone call to all residents to instruct them to boil water before drinking it.
I suggest that you filter the water, boil it, and then use something like a brita filter system before using it in food preparation of for drinking. You may also want to get bottled water until the drinking ban is over.
The phone call today said that there would be a follow up phone call when the boil water warning was over and the repairs are completed.
PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS IN CASE THEY MISSED THE CALL TO BOIL WATER BEFORE DRINKING.
