Capital Region Water (CRW) has issued a boil water advisory for a large swath of the Capitol area residential neighborhood.
The advisory covers the heavily residential area near the East Shore YMCA, from Front to North to N. 3rd to Forster streets (see map).
CRW issued the advisory following a water main break this afternoon on North Street near the YMCA. This has created low water pressure throughout the neighborhood, which increases the chance for water contamination.
Until further notice, CRW requests that customers boil water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation. CRW didn’t offer an estimated time for completion of the work, but said it would notify property owners when it lifts the advisory.
About 200 properties are affected from Front to N. 3rd Street; N. 3rd Street from Forster to North Street; North Street from N. 3rd to Buttonwood Street; Buttonwood Street from North Street to South Street; South Street from Buttonwood Street to Front Street; and Front Street from South Street to Forster Street.
