Well#2 – Failure of pump or pump motor

We have made a service call to service our pump for Well#2. We are currently running on backup Well#1. We should know more this afternoon. I will keep you posted here.
In the meantime, we have a boil water notice issued due to low pressure this morning. Here is the most up to date information about boil notice.

Fact Sheet About What to Do During a Boil Water Advisory

Boiling water
To boil water
• Fill a pot with water.
• Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
• Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.
• Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
• Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.

Disinfecting water
If you are unable to boil your water, disinfect it instead.

If tap water is clear:

• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).
• Add 1/8 teaspoon (8 drops or about 0.75 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon (16 cups) of water.
• Mix well and wait 30 minutes or more before drinking.
• Store disinfected water in clean container with a cover.

If tap water is cloudy:

• Filter water using clean cloth.
• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).
• Add 1/4 teaspoon (16 drops or 1.5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon (16 cups) of water.
• Mix well and wait 30 minutes or more before drinking.
• Store disinfected water in clean container with a cover.
Remember that containers may need to be sanitized before using them to store safe water.

To sanitize containers:
• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).
• Make a sanitizing solution by mixing 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach in 1 quart (32 ounces, 4 cups, or about 1 liter) of water.
• Pour this sanitizing solution into a clean storage container and shake well, making sure that the solution coats the entire inside of the container.
• Let the clean storage container sit at least 30 seconds, and then pour the solution out of the container.
• Let empty container air dry OR rinse it with clean water that has already been made safe, if available. Never mix bleach with ammonia or other cleaners. Open windows and doors to get fresh air when you use bleach.

Water filters
Boil tap water even if it is filtered. Most kitchen and other household water filters typically do not remove bacteria or viruses.

Preparing and cooking food
• Wash all fruits and vegetables with boiled water that has cooled or bottled water.
• Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute before adding food to cook.
• Use boiled water when preparing drinks, such as coffee, tea, and lemonade
• Wash food preparation surfaces with boiled water.

Feeding babies and using formula
• Breastfeeding is best. Continue to breastfeed. If breastfeeding is not an option:
• Use ready-to-use baby formula, if possible.
• Prepare powdered or concentrated baby formula with bottled water. Use boiled water if you do not have bottled water. Disinfect water for baby formula if you cannot boil your water (see above for directions on how to use bleach to disinfect water).
• Wash and sterilize bottles and nipples before use.
• If you cannot sterilize bottles, try to use single-serve, ready-to-feed bottles.

Ice
• Do not use ice from ice trays, ice dispensers, or ice makers.
• Throw out all ice made with tap water.
• Make new ice with boiled or bottled water.

Bathing and showering
Be careful not to swallow any water when bathing or showering.
Use caution when bathing babies and young children. Consider giving them a sponge bath to reduce the chance of them swallowing water.

Brushing teeth

Brush teeth with boiled or bottled water. Do not use untreated tap water.

Washing dishes
Household dishwashers generally are safe to use if the water reaches a final rinse temperature of at least 150 degrees or if the dishwasher has a sanitizing cycle.

To wash dishes by hand:
• Wash and rinse the dishes as you normally would using hot water.
• In a separate basin, add 1 teaspoon of unscented household liquid bleach for each gallon of warm water.
• Soak the rinsed dishes in the water for at least one minute.
• Let the dishes air dry completely.

Laundry
It is safe to do laundry as usual.

Pets
Pets can get some of the same diseases as people. It is a good idea to give them boiled water that has been cooled.

Well Water Flush Date: SUNDAY, July 1, 2021 starting at 11:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m

July 1, 2021

 

Dear Neighbor:

 

From time to time, Belmont Terrace Mutual Water Co. must flush out the water system in order to remove sand and other sediment from the lines.  We’ll be flushing the system on:

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2021 starting at 9:00 A.M.  We should be finished by 2:00 P.M.

 

Please DO NOT TURN ON ANY WATER during this time.  If you do, it is likely that sediment will be drawn into your home’s water lines.

 

We will place flush signs the day/night before at Danmar (near church), Norlee near Bella Vista, and Danmar at Ragle.  We will place orange cones next to all the fire hydrants Saturday morning before we start flushing.  The cones will stay in place until we are finished flushing.  Once ALL the cones are removed from in front of the fire hydrants water will be available to use.  Once we are finished, an alert will be sent on NextDoor.com saying that we are done.

 

If you do experience cloudy water, please run a backyard hose or faucet for 5-10 minutes to help flush out the sediment.  If you have problems after that, please call the Water Operators at 707-820-7787 or 707-820-7633.

 

We will be trying to limit the time and amount of water we are flushing.  We need to do the flush for water quality issues.

 

 

THANK YOU in advance for your cooperation in this matter!
