GOLD HILL, Ore. — Areas of Gold Hill south of the railroad tracks are currently under a boil water alert due to loss of water, city officials said on Monday.

"Due to the aged piping and valves, we have been unable to reduce pressure throughout the day," the City said. "We have made every attempt to prevent another water boil notice, but at this time it is inevitable."

The advisory includes 1st and 2nd Avenue, in addition to side streets below them. Officials said that there will be work done throughout the night in order to restore service.

Those in affected areas should bring water to a rolling boil for one full minute and allow the water to cool before using. Boiled water, once cooled, can be stored in a clean container with a cover.

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

The City said that the advisory is "strictly precautionary" to ensure safety. Potentially harmful bacteria could be present in the water supply, and may make people sick. The problem is expected to be resolved within 72 hours, but tests will need to be performed to show that no bacteria is present.
