WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- A malfunctioning fire hydrant will have water services temporarily shut down near Diggs Blvd. in Warner Robins on Wednesday.
According to a report, water is expected to be shut down from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as long as the weather permits it.
The City of Warner Robins Water Supervisor, Joey McDuffie, is advising everyone who experienced water outages or low water pressures to boil all water before using it for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. He says this is in order to protect the public from a potential health hazard. He adds, the water should be boiled for at least one minute after the rolling boil starts.
In addition, the report states that citizens should boil their water until their water utilities department notifies them that the water system has been restored and is safe for use.
McDuffie says this restoration has been planned for sometime now, so they hope it will inconvenience the least amount of people.
It's stated in the report that the advisory will be in effect for approximately 24 hours depending on the water testing after repairs of the hydrant are complete. Then, a second advisory will be issued when that alert is lifted.
The City of Warner Robins apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates everyone's patience with the on-going improvements.
