A boil order has been issued for the East End community after a main water line broke Sunday afternoon, disrupting water service throughout the community.

Officials say around mid-day on Sunday the East End Water Department began experiencing a significant water leak in its 12-inch water line located under Interstate 530.

East End Water Personnel are in the process of repairing the line and hope to have service restored by the end of Monday evening, however, until then, the community is asked to conserve water.

East End Water is asking the community to, if possible, not use water for the next few hours to allow them time to fill up the lines and towers.

If you are without water, do not leave the faucet on. This could cause delays in the department's ability to restore water in a timely manner.

In addition to conserving water, any water that's used for cooking or drinking must be boiled until further notice. This does not affect people living in other water districts in and around the East End area.

Follow the list below for proper boil procedures:

  • Fill a pot with water.
  • Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottem 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.

Due to a lack of water resources, a burn ban has also been placed into effect in East End for a minimum of 24 hours until 3 p.m. Monday.
