May 21, 2009
(STARTUP, WA) -- Over 200 Sky Valley residents and businesses that get their water from the Startup Water District were being advised yesterday to boil water from taps before use after a water main break occurred in the morning hours Wednesday. The advised procedure is boiling for one minute then allowing the water to cool before use.
For drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and preparing food boiled or purchased bottled water is advised. Customers were also advised to continue to boil water for a time after water pressure is restored.
