A boil water advisory has been issued to residents in parts of Clayton County, GA, after a break in the water main.
The advisory was issued on Tuesday, August 24 after damage to the main by a contractor in the local area. Crews were issued to repair the main, and the advisory was issued as a precautionary measure.
According to a Facebook post by Clayton County Water, customers in Lovejoy/Hampton east of Tara Boulevard from McDonough Road to Talmadge Road should boil their drinking water, or drink bottled water, until informed otherwise.
Clayton County Water has taken water samples for testing, and, should no contamination be detected, the advisory will be rescinded. It typically takes up to 48 hours for bacteriological test results to come through.
It’s estimated that the advisory will remain in effect until late Thursday. You can visit the Clayton County Water Facebook page for updates and information.
