As a customer of the Altoona Water Authority, you were notified in advance to expect interruptions to your water service on Wednesday September 9th 2020 while we repaired a broken water main in front of 114 Devon Dr.
Repairs such as these may cause a temporary loss of positive water pressure. Any loss of positive water pressure could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through back-flow by back-pressure or back-siphonage. You were therefore advised to use boiled or bottled water (for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food preparation) until further notice.
We are now pleased to report that all follow-up water samples have been tested, and the system has remained free of contamination. You are no longer required to boil your water; the water is safe to drink.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
