A Boil Advisory has been issued for the City of Beaver Bay water system. Water System Pressure has dropped to a point that harmful bacteria could enter the water system. Residents and businesses are directed to boil their drinking water for one minute or seek an alternate safe supply.
There was a water main break Monday evening. The city planned to make repairs Tuesday morning and said they should be done by the end of the day.
The city will post further information on the City’s web site, www.beaverbaymn.com, and at the U.S. Post Office in Beaver Bay if conditions change.
The city is asking residents to continue to boil water used for drinking until further notice. They also recommend checking hot water heaters or to turn them off so that the elements are not burned up due to lack of water. The city is also asking that residents make every effort to conserve water when it is available and do laundry and showers at off peak times when possible.
