PUBLIC NOTICE hydrant installation Jan 8 from 7:30-6 on Squibb Wilson Blvd near FSU.
The City of Fairmont will be installing a new fire hydrant on Squibb Wilson Boulevard near Fairmont State Campus, on Wednesday, January 8, between 7:30am – 6:00pm. This may affect the water in the surrounding area.
This could possibly discolor the water in the surrounding areas. While work is being performed, there is also a possibility that some customers may experience low pressure, cloudy water, or an interruption of service. If you experience low water pressure, your water is discolored, or you service is interrupted please follow these instructions. Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
The city will not be responsible for any damage caused by discolored water.
Customers with no water are to call the Fairmont Filtration plant at 304-366-1461 or Fairmont Utilities at 304-366-6231.
