Boil-water advisory in effect for Harrison residents through Monday

Natasha Lindstrom

A boil-water advisory remains in place for residents of Harrison’s Natrona neighborhood at least through Monday.

Emergency services officials confirmed late Sunday that the advisory will continue until testing demonstrates that the local water is safe to drink.

Residents should boil their water before using for drinking or cooking. Homes with possible lead contamination in their pipes should flush their water for at least 60 seconds before boiling.

Harrison Water Authority board member Mark Krumenacker told the Valley News Dispatch on Saturday that the advisory was issued after a mainline water pipe burst on Springhill Road. The line itself was repaired Friday.

Those affected should have received an automated call about the issue, Krumenacker said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
