Residents in Pulaski County & Town of Dublin asked to boil water

Residents in Pulaski County and the Town of Dublin are being advised to boil your tap water. 

According to a news release, "Inadequately treated water entered the drinking water system.  The inadequately treated water is a result of an emergency release of water from Buck dam on the New River upstream of the Pulaski County PSA water intake."

Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, beverage and food preparation, and making ice for the next 24 hours or until noon January 20th.   

The county is flushing the drinking water system to eliminate the bad water.  They should have the problem resolved within 24 hours.

Here is the full news release:

Notice to Customers of The Pulaski County Public Service Authority and the Town of Dublin
Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable.

BOIL YOUR TAP WATER

Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.

The Virginia Department of Health in conjunction with the Pulaski County Health Department, the Pulaski County Public Service Authority Water System, and the Town of Dublin are advising residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution. This precaution is necessary because inadequately treated water entered the drinking water system.  The inadequately treated water is a result of an emergency release of water from the Buck dam on the New River upstream of the Pulaski County PSA water intake.  This emergency release resulted in high turbidity in the raw water at the water treatment plant and the turbidity of the finished water exceeded drinking water standards.

DO NOT DRINK TAP WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST

Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, beverage and food preparation, and making ice for the next 24 hours or until noon January 20, 2009 unless further notification extends this notice1. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Boiling is the preferred method to assure that the tap water is safe to drink. Bring all tap water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water.  Use caution boiling water; let water cool before attempting to move container to avoid spills, scalds and burns.  Boil amounts of water that you can safely handle.

To address this problem we are flushing the drinking water system to eliminate the inadequately treated water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 24 hours.
