Boil water advisory issued

Published 12:32 pm Friday, January 22, 2021

A boil water advisory has been issued for residents of Erskine Drive, Stevenson Avenue, Brookshire Drive, and Butler Avenue.

Danville Water Works employees are making repairs to a 6-inch C900 line that has reportedly slipped out of a valve. They will be replacing three feet of pipe in the area.

Although no contamination has been confirmed, Danville Water Works recommends bringing all water to a rolling boil and letting it boil for 3 minutes, then allowing the water to cool before use. Use of bottled water is also recommended for drinking purposes, as well as making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and any food preparation.
