FREDERICK, MD - Crews from the Frederick County Division of Water and Sewer Utilities are responding to reports of several water leaks in the vicinity of Christopher’s Crossing and Glen Heather Drive.
Residents of the Cloverhill III community may experience fluctuations in water pressure or a complete loss of water service. At this time there is no estimate for when water service will be restored.
Because of loss of water pressure experienced during the repair of several water leaks, the Frederick County Division of Water and Sewer Utilities is announcing a precautionary boil water advisory to the approximately 330 customers served water by the Cloverhill III Water System.
It is recommended that customers boil all water used for food preparation, teeth brushing, ice making, and drinking until further notice. Customers are advised to bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one minute, which is sufficient to ensure the water is safe for consumption. After boiling, remember to let the water cool before use. Ice that has been made today should not be consumed or used for drinking. The water may be used for bathing and washing without boiling.
The Division of Water and Sewer Utilities, the Frederick County Health Department, and the Maryland Department of the Environment are monitoring the water system and will lift or revise this advisory as necessary. The advisory is a precautionary measure and will be lifted after water service and quality are fully restored and water quality tests verify the safety of the water supply. This process may take several days.
For more information, residents should call the Division of Water and Sewer Utilities at 301-600-1825 during normal business hours and 301-600-2194 after hours. For further information or questions, contact Division Director Mark Schweitzer at 301-600-2296 or via e-mail at MSchweitzer@FrederickCountyMD.gov
