As a precautionary measure, the City of Hapeville has issued a boil water advisory for the Virginia Park Neighborhood and any streets south of the railroad tracks and west of Virginia Avenue. This advisory is due to a water main break. The break was located and has been repaired.
In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all residents and property owners that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use, or use bottled water for drinking, cooking preparing baby food or brushing teeth. The water should be boiled for one minute past a rolling boil. Infants, the elderly and those with immune deficiencies should be particularly cautious. Do not drink water from public water fountains in the impacted area.
Vigorous hand washing or showers with soap and tap water should be safe for basic personal hygiene. However, if washing hands to prepare food, use boiled (then cooled) water along with hand-washing soap.
The public should continue to boil their water or use bottled water until the boil water advisory is lifted.
For any questions, please contact Lemuel Eubanks at 404-207-0124.
