Nelsonville water outage E of Hillside Dr on Burr Oak Blvd, Village of Buchtel, 10:15AM, boil order until further notice

Nelso Boil Order

The City of Nelsonville Water Department is working on a major water line break located on Burr Oak Boulevard. At 10:15AM all water will be shut off to customers East of Hillside Drive on Burr Oak Boulevard including the entire Village of Buchtel. Once the water line is repaired a boil order will be in effect for the same area until further notice.

Boil orders are put into place as a result of broken water lines or local flooding. When this happens, the drinking water may have been contaminated which can cause many illnesses.

  • Here are some tips to keep in mind, should you find yourself in this situation:
    • Bring water to a full boil, and boil for three minutes prior to use.
    • Use only boiled water for drinking, preparing food or baby formula.
    • To improve the flat taste of boiled water, keep cold in refrigerator.
    • Put a cup over your faucets as a reminder to not use tap water – not even to brush your teeth!
    • Instead of boiling water, you can disinfect water by adding one teaspoon unscented chlorine laundry bleach for every five gallons of water. Let stand 30 minutes before using.
    • Be sure to use sanitized food grade containers for storing water.
    • To disinfect water storage containers, pour a solution of one tablespoon of unscented chlorine bleach to a gallon of water into a container. Let the solution remain in the container for 10 minutes, then pour out the solution. Rinse with purified water.
    • Boiled or disinfected water can be stored for six months.
    • Dispose of ice cubes.
    • When washing dishes, make sure to sterilize dishes with a final dip in water that has one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water. Disposable tableware is an option during a boil order.
    • It is also recommended you sanitize hands when washing. Again, use one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water and rinse hand frequently by pouring rinse over the hands. Use paper towels to dry.
    • Water for bathing doesn’t need to be boiled. Supervise children to avoid water being ingested.
