City of Madison Water Department Issues Boil-Water Advisory for City of Madison Residents
Due to an accident involving a fire hydrant, the City of Madison Water Department has issued a boil water advisory out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Georgia EPD guidance for public advisory.
The boil water advisory is only in effect for these affected streets:Bethany Road, Bramblewood Drive, Creek Point Drive, Cooks Hill Road, Green Meadows Court, Green Meadows Drive, Harris Avenue, Levi Court, Meadow Ridge Drive, Overlook Drive, Pine Tree Circle, E. Washington Street east of Cooks Hill Road.
In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all residents and property owners that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use, or use bottled water, for drinking, cooking, preparing baby food or brushing teeth. The water should be boiled for one minute past a rolling boil. Infants, the elderly and those with immune deficiencies should be particularly cautious. Do not drink water from public water fountains in the impacted area.
Vigorous hand washing or showers with soap and tap water should be safe for basic personal hygiene. However, if washing hands to prepare food, use boiled (then cooled) water along with handwashing soap.
The public should continue to boil their water or use bottled water until the boil water advisory is lifted. If you experienced a loss of water at your address but your address is not within the area described, the City recommends you follow these precautions.
The City of Madison Water Department will follow its flushing protocols for the system as a precaution and has sampled the affected zones to affirm that there is no contamination in the system. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division will advise the Water Department when the advisory can be lifted.
