Boil water order in area of Goshen

GOSHEN, Ind. – A boil order has been issued for a number of residents in Goshen.

The City of Goshen announced today that East Reynolds Street, just east of U.S. 33/Lincolnway East, is under a boil water order.

On Tuesday, the water main was shut off to repair a main and a boil order was issued. This order was required by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

A sample was taken on Wednesday and per IDEM standards, the sample did not pass.

A second sample was taken on Thursday.

Once two consecutive water samples have been taken 24 hours apart and are analyzed and found to be bacteria-free, the boil order will be lifted on Saturday, May 29.

Residents in the affected area have been notified and notice of a cancellation will be distributed via a customer flier to those affected by the order.

Those in the affected area should not consume city water without first following prescribed boiling procedures.

The city water is safe for bathing, restroom use, and laundry.

Residents can also clean dishes with a dishwasher as long as it has a sanitizing cycle but hand-washed dishes need to be rinsed with boiled or bottled water.

Please call Andrew at City of Goshen Engineering Department at 574-533-8622 for more information or to report specific service concerns.
