WATER ADVISORY ENDS FOR STARTUP
May 23, 2009
(OLYMPIA,WA) — Customers of the Startup Water District in Snohomish County no longer have to boil their drinking water.
The water district ended the boil-water advisory yesterday after lab tests showed the water meets safe drinking water standards.
The utility issued the advisory after a water main broke Wednesday morning, an event that could have allowed contaminated or untreated water to be drawn into the system.
Utility crews repaired the broken water main, flushed the lines, and took water samples to test for bacterial contamination.
Startup customers who have questions about their water may call 360-793-1833.
