The City of Delaware is undertaking a water system maintenance project in your area. Water service interruption is necessary to connect to the existing distribution system. Your service will be interrupted at 8 am on May 16 and should be restored by 5 pm that day. A Boil Order Advisory is being issued, as required by the Ohio EPA, to all affected customers. This boil order will be in effect for customers mentioned above from the time water service is restored on May 16 until May 18 at 5 pm. A Boil Order Advisory is issued due to the remote possibility that coliform bacteria, present in the environment, could be introduced into the water system when a main is depressurized. The bacteria could render the water non-potable or unsafe for human consumption.  Only if this advisory is extended will residents affected by the Boil Order be notified, otherwise it expires at the previously stated date and time in this notice.
