BOIL ORDER

1/8/2018

Due to the recent water main breaks in the City of Athens, a boil order is still in effect for the entire Athens Water District until further notice. 

We will post updates here on our website once we have further information. 

 

Please be aware of the following measures that need to be taken during a boil order:

Do NOT use the water for:

-drinking

-ice making

-food washing/preparation

-drink preparation 

-dish washing

-hand washing

-pet care

-child bathing

-personal hygiene

Please take measures to ensure that bathing time is limited if you choose to not boil your water first. Customers should also boil any water that will be used for direct consumption for 5 minutes prior to consumption. 

The boil order will remain in effect until bacteriological testing confirms the safety of the drinking water.
