This evening, we were watching TV and wondered why there were trucks and loud noises outside for hours.
It turns out- a water line broke across the street.
I wasn’t sure if we had to boil the water. So, we asked one of the workers and he said, since they were running the water through an alternate valve, we wouldn’t have to. There would be no bacteria build-up from the water standing still in an open line.
All he said to do was run the water in all the faucets when they were done fixing the pipe to get the air out of the line.
