City Water Main Damaged

Update: Water Safe, Boil Advisory Cancelled.

Yesterday (April 13th), a critical transmission main in the City’s system was damaged during construction. That section of the main was taken out of service and repairs are underway. However, due to the depth of the line and the type of line, it is a very tedious process to get repaired. Until we expose the line, we will not know specifics or be able to assess the damage. We expect to know more by early afternoon today about the repair. Meanwhile, this has created a hydraulic challenge on parts of our system that we are diligently working on to correct. If you are currently without water you will need to boil the water for one minute once service is restored.

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST.

For more information about this public notice visit the city website at www.bethlehem-pa.gov. We will be sending another message when the problem is corrected and your water is safe to drink.
