Carson City Public Works is planning maintenance work affecting water service in the Timberline and University Heights areas starting Sunday, March 19 at 8 p.m., and continuing into Monday, March 20, according to a news release.
The maintenance will result in no water service and/or reduced water pressure.
“While all precautions will be taken for disinfection during the repair of the affected water mains, this pressure reduction could result in drinking water contamination,” the release said. “Residents are advised to boil water before consumption for one full minute. Testing of the water will take place following the work. Residents in the affected areas will be notified when testing is complete, and they are no longer required to boil the water. It is anticipated that testing will take two days.”
Visit www.carson.org/wateralert for information, including a map of the affected area and a complete copy of the Boil Water Notice.
Residents in the affected areas may experience discolored water during the work and after the restoration of service. Residents are advised not to wash light-colored laundry if their water is discolored.
