Boil Order

9/12/2018

The Athens Water District is currently under a

BOIL ORDER UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

This includes ALL residents and business that are served by the Athens Water Department.

Precautionary boil orders are issued when the water system pressure falls below 20PSI due to repairs and/or operational problems.

At this time we are asking residents to please conserve water to preserve the water that we do have available for usage until our towers can replenish.

Please be sure to NOT use the water for:

  • drinking
  • ice making
  • personal hygiene
  • food washing/preparation
  • drink preparation
  • dish washing
  • hand washing
  • pet care
  • child bathing

Please take measures to ensure that bathing time is limited if you choose to not boil your water first. Water should be boiled for 5 minutes before consumption.
