For residents served by Fenton city water on Trealout, Fenton Commons, and the Appletree Subdivision, bacteriological testing has confirmed the water meets drinking water standards and residents no longer need to boil their drinking or cooking water.
A 6-inch water main on Trealout St. was discovered broken on Wednesday. City crews attempted to make repairs without depressurizing the system but were unsuccessful. On Thursday the crews had to shut down the water main to make the repairs which required the pipe in the area of the break to lose all pressure. Many water customers in this area experienced low pressure or possibly no pressure during this time which required the City to issue a boil order and perform additional flushing of the water mains and bacteriological testing.
The boil water advisory affected those living in areas off Trealout St., including Crestmont Care Center, Crestview Apartments, The Home Apartments, Fenton Estates, as well as those on Fenton Commons, and the Appletree subdivision including the streets of Appletree, Swanee Beach, Orchard Lake, and South Long Lake.
The boil water order did not affect any other areas of the community.
Again, bacteriological testing has confirmed the water meets drinking water standards and residents in the affected area no longer need to boil their drinking or cooking water.
