Water Advisory Issued for North Twin Falls
The City of Twin Falls has issued a Water Advisory for city water users in North Twin Falls, which affects users north of Addison Avenue from the east city limits to the west city limits. This is a precautionary measure following a water line break Friday morning.
At approximately 9:20 a.m. on Friday, March 11, contractors working on the Cheney Drive Extension Project struck a water main near the intersection of North College Road and Frontier Road. The waterline break is continuing to lose a significant amount of water, which is causing reduced water pressure to residents and businesses in north Twin Falls.
City workers are on the scene and working to use a system of waterline valves to isolate the ruptured line and restore water pressure to citizens. The City will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates to the public.
A Water Advisory is a precautionary measure, which encourages water users to do the following:
- Boil drinking water
- Drink bottled water
- Use a certified filtration unit for drinking water
- Water is safe for all other uses, and does not require boiling or treatment
