Chelan PUD Issues Boil Water Advisory for Olds Station

Yesterday morning the automated controls that operate the PUD’s water system malfunctioned in Olds Station and a portion of the water system affecting about 250 customers in the area lost pressure. Repairs have been made and water service has been restored. The affected customers are within the following geographic area:  Lower Sunnyslope Road/Penny Road on the West to Highway 97A on the East; the Wenatchee River on the South to about a half-mile north of the round-about.
However, when pressure is lost there is a potential for contamination to enter into the water distribution system, said PUD Spokesperson Kim Craig. As a result, the PUD is asking customers to boil water until it has been determined that the water is safe to drink.
Water samples have been collected and delivered to a local lab for analysis. Results will be returned this afternoon and the PUD will advise all customers at that time if the water is safe to drink.
