Boil Order For Clinton City and Syracuse Water Supply Lifted
DAVIS COUNTY, UTAH – June 10, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – The Clinton City and Syracuse water boil advisory has been lifted today.
Effective immediately as of today at 9 a.m., test results confirm the culinary water to be safe. The city is asking residents to observe the flushing procedures identified on the City website at www.clintoncity.net which have been provided by the Davis County Health Department for each applicable plumbing fixture or appliances PRIOR to using any culinary water.
A water advisory was issued for Clinton City residents shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday. A number of residents were actually notified by way of reverse 911 calls.
Saturday’s boil order came on the heels of an earlier E-Coli discovery in the nearby city of Syracuse. Residents there were ordered to boil their drinking water last Friday, June 5, after E-Coli and Coliform were detected in the city’s water supplies. City workers say they traced the source of the contamination to a site where a pipeline carrying non-potable water was connected to a pipeline carrying culinary water. Thousands of Syracuse residents have been affected by the contamination.
Syracuse City in conjunction with the Davis County Health Department has also authorized the cancellation of the water advisory boil notice.
Residents are asked to review and implement the flushing procedures for each applicable plumbing fixture or appliance prior to using culinary water, detailed at http://www.syracuseut.com/
