Residents of three Lincoln Streets have to boil their water until further notice.
Nancy, the assistant superintendent of the Lincoln Water District, announced today that the urban water regime affects residents of Taylor Street, Mattanawcook Street and Tucker Ridge Road. The water is temporarily turned off while a major water break is being repaired. Once it’s fixed and the water is back on, residents will need to boil their water until it can be tested.
The USCDC has recommendations for people under a cooking water order:
- Use bottled or boiled tap water for drinking and cooking.
- To disinfect tap water, leave it on a full roll boil for at least 1 minute, then allow it to cool before use.
- Even if your tap water contains a filtration system, it should be boiled before using it.
- Do not use water from a device such as a refrigerator without first boiling it.
- Brush your teeth with boiled, chilled water.
- You can shower or bathe as long as you are careful not to ingest water.
- Clothes can be washed in water. However, use paper dishes to avoid washing up.
- Pets should also be given bottled or boiled water (that has been allowed to cool), as the same germs that can harm people can also harm your animals.
Once the boiling water order is canceled, the water is safe to use. Questions should be directed to the Lincoln Water District at 207-794-2921.
