Some Goshen residents will be under a boil order Monday morning after a scheduled water main shutdown.
The city of Goshen will shut down the water main that serves South Eighth Street between Waverly and College avenues from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25, so crews can relocate a fire hydrant, according to a city news release.
Once water service is restored, water samples will be taken and tested for bacteria. The boil order will be lifted once two consecutive tests show safe bacteria levels.
While the boil order is in effect, city water in the affected area should not be consumed without first being boiled. The water is still safe for bathing, laundry and restroom facilities, according to the news release.
It is safe to clean dishes in a dishwasher if the machine has a sanitizing cycle, but hand-washed dishes should be rinsed with boiled water.
