As of this afternoon, Valparaiso City Utilities field service crews are responding to a large water main break due to a contractor hitting the water main. To repair this break, water service will be interrupted for a period of time for customers in the Aberdeen, Autumn Oaks, Emerald Ridge, Tuscany and Heavilin School areas.
Due to the interruption of service, a precautionary boil advisory has been issued to residents and business owners in these areas.
The water microbiology laboratory will conduct the necessary testing to assure the water passes the required bacteria testing. The boil advisory will last approximately 48 hours and may be extended if additional testing is needed.
It is recommended that all cooking and drinking water be brought to a complete boil for five (5) minutes before using. Please continue to boil all cooking and drinking water until we notify you that it is no longer necessary.
For further information regarding boil advisories, please call our Customer Service Center at 219 462 6174 or visit our website under www.valparaisoutilities.org (FAQs “What should I do when a boil advisory is issued”).
