Expected to last until Friday

The City of Augusta is issuing a Boil Water Order effective immediately due to a power outage that has disabled a control computer for the water distribution system. The City of Augusta cannot currently track the level of water in the water towers until the control computer is back online which could affect the pressure in the distribution system. It is expected it will take until Friday, May 10, 2019 to refill the water towers. During the Boil Water Order, City of Augusta water customers must observe the following precautions:

• Water used in food and/or beverages must be boiled prior to consumption until the order is rescinded;

The City of Augusta will notify the public when the Boil Water Order has been rescinded. For more information, contact Assistant City Manager Cody Sims at (316) 775-4510.
