UPDATE: As of 2:05 p.m. today (February 22), the Medford Water Commission has announced that the Boil Water Advisory is lifted. Samples tested by the Commission have demonstrated no harmful bacteria present at this time.

MEDFORD, Ore. — According to the Medford Water Commission, a water main break this morning on Lozier Lane in Medford has caused them to issue a Boil Water Advisory for specific addresses on that street. Only the following addresses (all on Lozier Lane) are affected:

625, 629, 630, 695, 715, 724, 750, 761, 763, 794, 795, 819, 820, 825, 890, 903, 914, 915, 945, 960, 961, 1001, 1008, 1010, 1045, 1046, 1092, 1135, and 1145.

The Water Commission warns that anyone at one of these addresses must not drink any tap water that has not been boiled. This includes for brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food or baby formula, making ice, or cleaning food contact surfaces.

Lost water pressure can result in a buildup of harmful bacteria in the pipes. The Water Commission says that water should be brought to a rolling boil for one full minute and be allowed to cool before use. They will follow up and rescind the Advisory once tests show no bacteria, which may take 24 - 36 hours or more.
