Officials say now that the Moab boil order has been lifted, those impacted by the order must do the following.
- For at least five minutes each, run all of your cold-water faucets on high.
- For a home with several levels, begin at the top of the house.
- Consider flushing for a longer time, if you have a long or complex connection, such as an apartment building.
- If water is not clear, continue to run the tap until it is.
Moab water service was disrupted following flooding last weekend in the city.
WATER SERVICE UPDATE FOR 100 WEST and W. CENTER PROPERTIES:
Service will be restored on Wed. or Thurs. A BOIL ORDER will be in effect for several days for safety because of possible contamination of the water line. Water must be boiled for drinking or cooking during the order. pic.twitter.com/O3RLkdKvVc
