Water Issue Update - March 8, 2017
To the Parents of Chagrin Falls Intermediate, Middle, and High School students,
As you know, there was a water main break in the Village of Chagrin Falls. Water was restored, but due to some pressure loss the Village Utilities Department issued a boil advisory for the entire Village. The advisory has been extended through Thursday, March 9th.
Schools will be open tomorrow with the drinking fountains at the Intermediate, Middle, and High Schools covered. Just as we did today, we will provide bottled water at the schools, but suggest parents send a bottle of water to school with students to help alleviate the overall need. Our kitchen staff will boil all water used for the preparation of food.
Again, we have full water pressure at the buildings so there is no issue with water for hand washing or toilet flushing.
If we receive communication on the boil advisory from the Village, we will provide an update to parents and staff on our website. Our school district appreciates the efforts and communications from the Village of Chagrin Falls during this event.
The Village Utilities Dept. experienced a major water main break Tuesday morning.
Issued: March 8, 2017
While we don’t believe there is any contamination to the system, due to the loss of pressure, we issued a boil advisory for the entire Village. After communicating with Ohio EPA they have required us to collect additional samples. This will extend the boil advisory through Thursday, March 9, 2017. It is recommended any water used for human consumption should be boiled vigorously for minute.
If you have any questions please contact the Utilities Dept. at 247-5050.
