Water Main Burst Leaves Assisted Living Facility Without Water

A water main break left hundreds without water earlier this week. Crews have been working around the clock to restore water to hundreds of people affected by the city water main break . A nearby assisited living facility was one of the city's first priorities. They wanted to restore water to the 60 residents that live at the facility as quickly as possible. The facility's executive director says despite being without water for neary 24 hours, they were never seriously concerned for anyone's health because fortunately they had an emergency plan in place in case of water loss.

City officials say that the water restored at this time is flowing through temporary lines and may not be safe to drink. He encourages people to use the water only for bathing, and to drink from water bottles which are being provided by the city until data from tests run on the water reveals whether or not it is safe to drink.
