On Tuesday, Aug. 15, Xenia Rural Water District put out a boiling advisory following a break in their water main. According to company, the main has been repaired and service is restored. The leak involves residents on 335th St. and west of D Avenue, north of Perry.
The following boiling instructions were issued from the Xenia website: “It is recommended not to drink the water without boiling first. Bring the water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using. You may also use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms. The water may be used for bathing and other similar purposes without boiling it first.”
Perry’s Golf & Country Club’s property was involved in the break and boiling advisory. According to Manager Cassie Gilmore, the golf course was informed yesterday of the incident.
“Right now we just lost water pressure and it came back on,” Gilmore said.
The golf course has stocked up on water bottles and bagged ice, Gilmore says.
“Things are still going,” Gilmore said.
According to information from the Xenia website, once water service is restored in the area, the water will be tested to ensure safe consumption. Once water is safe, those affected will be notified when the boil advisory is finished.
