NEW GOSHEN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Update: As of Thursday morning at 9 a.m., the Fayette Township Water Association have lifted the boil order that had been in place.
Original: Customers of the Fayette Township Water Association are being asked to boil water before use until further notice.
A boil order has been activated due to a malfunctioning chlorinator. The group says the order is a precautionary move.
The order will remain in place until further notice.
The CDC’s guidance for how to properly boil water during these situations is as follows:
- Fill a pot with water.
- Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
- Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.
- Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
- Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
