UPDATE, FEB. 26– The precautionary water boil notice for Adamsville Utilities customers has been lifted.
ORIGINAL STORY– The Adamsville Utility Department issued a precautionary boil water notice for all customers on Friday afternoon.
Adamsville City Administrator Kara Hill said water system workers are continuing to search for leaks which are causing problems of low or no water pressure. The most seriously impacted area seems to be the main part of the city, she said.
Utility crews haven’t discovered any major water line breaks, but leaks caused by frozen pipes which have burst are being found at homes, she said.
Combined, the leaks are affecting water pressure system-wide and drawing down water levels at storage tanks.
The city is asking customers to inspect their property for unusual standing water or puddles, and to look in crawl spaces for evidence of leaks.
One way to check for leaks is to turn off all faucets in the house. Then look at the gauge on the water meter outside to see if it’s moving. If it is, there’s a leak.
To stop the leak while repairs are made, close the valve on the water meter.
To report a water leak, call the City of Adamsville at 731-632-1401, and then press Option 3.
