Martinsville Public Works will be replacing a main fire hydrant valve on Corn Tassel Trail between Spruce Street Extension and Hazelwood Lane on June 1, 2002. As a result, water will be off from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Following that, a boil water notice will be in effect for the Corn Tassel Trail area from June 1 to June 3.
It is recommended that customers bring water to a rolling boil for 1 full minute, allow the water to cool before using, and store the cooled water in a clean container with a cover. Customers should use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water for uses such as:
- Brushing teeth
- Washing fruits and vegetables
- Preparing food and baby formula
- Making ice
- Cleaning food contact surfaces or dishes
The water will be safe to drink on June 3. For more information contact Mike Kahle, Director of Water Resources, at (276) 403-5157
