A Dozen Homes Affected by Boil Water Advisory in Medford

New pipe replacement leads to a boil water advisory for a dozen homes in Medford Tuesday.

Posted: Oct 30, 2018 6:33 PM

Medford, ORE.-- Twelve homes in Medford are under a boil water advisory.

A new piece of pipe was being installed in Meadows Lane and Cherry Street. During the installation the water main was inadvertently depressurized. 

Due to the loss of water pressure, potentially harmful bacteria could be in the water supply for 12 homes on Meadows Lane and Cherry Street. 

These are the only homes affected: 

Cherry Street: 609, 611, 612, 616

Meadow Lane: 1701, 1709, 1717, 1720, 1721, 1722, 1724, 1726

If these bacteria are present, they could make you sick. 

People should bring water to a rolling boil for one full minute, allow the water to cool before using, and store the cooled water in a clean container.

Boiled water should be used for drinking, brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food and baby formula, making ice, and cleaning contact surfaces. 

The Medford Water Commission will let people know when tests results come back and you no longer need to boil your water. It could be up to 36 hours before test results come back. 

Any questions should be directed to the Medford Water Commission at (541) 774-2430.
