Boil Water Advisory Update
The boil water advisory for Zone 2a of the Terrace Heights Water System is still in effect. Chlorine levels have been increased since last week. Informational water samples were collected on Monday August 7th and results will be available later today and posted on the website. If results are satisfactory, Yakima County will begin reducing chlorine levels. Additional samples will be collected once chlorine levels are reduced to normal operating levels.
Customers in Zone 2a are asked to flush water from each faucet for approximately 5 minutes to bring chlorinated water to all parts of their household plumbing. If they are aware of any connections between the domestic water system and their irrigation system, a swimming pool, or any other source of non-potable water they are asked to contact Yakima County Public Services so the connection can be checked for cross connections.
