Manic Monday- No Water!!

The Viking Homestead has been on a little cyber vacation. We are back!
Our Humble Little Town has this outstanding Community Network blog and email. For the most part the emails consist of lost family pets or advertisements for a Small Business. The HOT ALERTS for accidents and weather have been valuable to all of us.

This Saturday, the community received this notice via our Network and also by phone.



Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.
Due to a water main break on A-- Blvd., the California Department of Public Health in conjunction with the San Diego County Health Department, and P--- Dam Municipal Water District are advising all residents east of H-------- Canyon Road (the A--- Way pumping zone) to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
We will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 72 hours.
For more information call:
Water Utility contact: D--- L----, System Operations Manager, 619-555-4673, 9300 Fanita Parkway, S------, CA 90000.
California Department of Public Health – Drinking Water Field Operations Branch- District Office at 619-555-4159.
Local Environmental Health Jurisdiction: San Diego County at 858-555-6700.

The amusing part of this broken water main is that this is the "NEW" part of the Sunrise Powerlink construction. This is not like the 101 year old water pipe that blew in San Diego last week. 
We have also received a phone call from our local school district stating that they will have school on Monday but have requested that we send our children to school with bottled water during the duration of the Boil Alert. 

I guess it could be worse.
