Boil Water Advisory for Wednesday 1/8/2020

The City of Asheville (COA) Water Resources Department would like to report an emergency water interruption due to a waterline repair on/in East Asheville Pump Station. This interruption of water requires issuance of a Boil Water Advisory.

The City encourages customers to vigorously boil tap water for 1 minute before consuming it. City staff are performing laboratory testing and the advisory will be lifted when tests confirm the possibility of risk is not present. Customers will receive notification that the advisory has been lifted.

When water systems experience low pressure or lose pressure, there is an increased risk of contamination. This does not mean that the water is contaminated, but that the possibility exists. Once pressure returns, there is the possibility that some discolored water or air could be present in the lines. Customers are advised to run cold water for 5-10 minutes or until water is clear.
