Boil advisory issued for Blanchard Water System


 The Blanchard Water System had a water main break and due to having to make repairs. The system may be experiencing service interruptions until repairs are complete. 

Due to the water being off for an extended period of time, the water produced by the water supply system is questionable microbiological quality. Customers are asked to please limit water usage until repairs are complete and the advisory has been lifted. 

As a precaution, a boil advisory has been issued and is to remain in effect until rescinded. 

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing foods.

Boil water for one minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
