Cumming Utilities has issued a boil water advisory notice for residents on Doc Sams Road and vicinity following a water main leak on May 10.
The boil water advisory includes homes located along Doc Sams Road, Evergreen Drive, Ruby Drive, Winding Creek Drive, Meadow Trail, Deerfield Drive and along Heardsville Road within four houses of Doc Sams Road. Residents in this area are advised to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil.
All residents in the affected area received direct notice of the boil water advisory on May 10, following the leak, which was caused by an electrical contractor hitting a Cumming Utilities water line along Doc Sams Road. City crews repaired the line at approximately 4 p.m. on May 10.
This boil water advisory is in affect for the next 48 hours (through Sunday, May 13) or until the advisory is lifted by Cumming Utilities following water quality testing results.
