City of Albany alerts 180 customers to boil water after sewer work

The city of Albany wants people who live in some neighborhoods near Philema Road to know they'll be without water Monday.

The Water Department will perform sewer main work starting at 9 a.m.

It will leave River Pointe, Crusoe Village, and Chehaw Park and addresses between 315 and 1006 Philema Road without water.

The city delivered a gallon of water to affected customers.

“After the eight hours of work they will repair that water line and flush it out and sample it. So it will be cut back on but they are asked they boil that water for one to three minutes for consumption.” Said Monique Broughton, Marketing Manager.

Residents will be contacted when the work is done.

They'll need to boil their water for 18-hours after that to make sure it's safe. People can call Energy Control at 883-8330 ext 506 for more information.
