BOIL WATER ORDER

There has been a water main break affecting water pressure within the Acres on the Signor System Only.   The Health Department has imposed a “boil water” alert for the system.  Over the next several days, the Forever Wild Water company will be required to test the water to ensure that it is free of bacteria.  This procedure requires testing over several days.  The water is safe to use for bathing and washing.  But, it should be boiled prior to drinking.

This issue does not include the Kitzbuhel section of the Acres because they operate on a separate system.
