Water Main Repair / Boil Advisory Notice
Monday, December 3, 2007 1:19:05 PM - Monroe Ohio
by Brad Collins, Director of Public Works

On Tuesday, December 4, 2007 at 8:00 am, the City of Monroe will be shutting down the water main to do repair work in the Oak Knolls Subdivision, including Bendel Drive, Amity Lane, and Dorothy Lane. There will be no water available to your residence during this period.

After the water has been restored, there will be a boil water advisory in effect for a minimum of 48 hours.  This is strictly a precautionary measure that is required by the Ohio E.P.A. toconfirm that there are no contaminants in the water.   A sample will be taken after the water has been restored.  When the sample results prove negative for any contaminant, we will notify you by door hangers that the boil water advisory has been lifted.

Under a boil advisory, it is advisable to bring the water you will use for drinking, cooking and all personal hygiene (such as brushing your teeth) to a rolling boil for three minutes.  You may find additional information about the boil advisory at our website

The boil water advisory will only be in effect for the residences that have received a notification on their door. 

When the water has been restored, you may experience "red" water and you should not do laundry to avoid staining your clothes.  The water will clear up.  If you have red water, you may want to run your water for a few minutes to flush the red water from your system.

If you have any questions, you may call us at 539-7374.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
