Boil Advisory for Mt. Aetna Water System

Boil Advisory for Mt. Aetna Water System

HAGERSTOWN, MD (September 15, 2021) – The Washington County, Maryland Department of Water Quality announces a precautionary boil water advisory to customers at 21738 – 21835 Academy Terrace on the Mt. Aetna Water System.
 
Because of water line break and repair, a boil water advisory is issued.
 
It is recommended that customers boil all water used for food preparation, teeth brushing, ice making, and drinking until further notice. Customers are advised to bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one (1) minute, which is enough to ensure the water is safe for consumption. After boiling, remember to let the water cool before use. Ice, which has been made within the past 3 hours, should not be consumed or used for drinking. Ice should be discarded until the boil water advisory is lifted. The water may be used for bathing and washing without boiling.
 
The Washington County Department of Water Quality is monitoring the water system and will lift or revise this advisory as necessary. The advisory is a precautionary measure and will be lifted after water service and quality are fully restored and water quality tests verify the safety of the water supply. This process may take 2 days.
 
For more information, residents should call the Washington County Department of Water Quality office at 240-313-2600.
