Boil advisory issued for some Marietta water customers

About 20 Marietta water customers on Dean Street, Emerson Street and a section of Ninth Street to Warren Street will experience loss of water service or low pressure due to emergency repairs to a 6-inch water main. A boil advisory has been issued for those who lose pressure.

The advisory will be in effect until water customers are notified of its cancellation through local media, the City of Marietta web page, City of Marietta Facebook and Washington County Emergency Alert System.

Those who could have experienced a loss of water service or pressure are advised to rapid boil their drinking water or water used in food preparation for two minutes following restoration of water service.

Customers should flush their own lines through the cold water lines only until the water is clear. Brown (mineral deposits) or cloudy (air) water are normal discolorations experienced after a water service interruption.

Questions should be directed to 740-374-6864.
