Health Advisories : Gilman City placed under boil water advisory
Posted by Tom on 2012/10/16 7:35:55 (636 reads) News by the same author

A precautionary boil water advisory is in effect for Gilman City until further notice. Utilities Superintendent Larry Hyre says that a lightning strike on Saturday damaged a Gilman City water main midway between Gilman City and Coffey, leading to the water tower being drained and a water outage for Gilman City.

Repairs were made on Saturday, but samples of water will need to be tested to determine whether the water is safe to drink and use for cooking.

Lightning "split" a Farmer's Electric pole and apparently moved down a ground wire, blowing a four-foot section from the water main.

Water line flushing was conducted, but water samples must be tested before the boil advisory is lifted for Gilman City.

Gilman City receives its water from Harrison County Public Water Supply District Two. The district itself DOES NOT have a boil advisory. The line damaged by lightning was a GILMAN CITY main.
