Subject: Boil advisory issued
Due to a water main depressurization it will be necessary to issue a boil advisory for the follow areas:
Chevy Chase Road from Andover Road to Dickson Parkway.
Dickson Parkway from Overlook Road to Stewart Lane.
Under a boil advisory it is suggested that all consumed water be brought to a rolling boil for a full 3 minutes prior to consumption. This is a precautionary measure to be taken until samples can be tested to confirm water purity. A notice will be issued at the completion of the test.
As a standard practice the USEPA recommends the following actions to reduce possible lead exposure in drinking water:
• If water has not been used for several hours, run the tap until there is a noticeable temperature drop. Then, run water for 30 seconds to 3 minutes before using it for drinking and cooking. This helps flush water that may have contained lead that may have leached from plumbing. Use cold water for cooking, drinking, and preparing baby formula. Boiling the water will not reduce lead.• Clean your faucet aerator regularly.

Any questions concerning this notice may be directed to the Water Repair Dept. during normal business hours Monday thru Friday 7:00am to 3:30pm at 419-755-9806.
