Cedar Point Repair Completed

August 11, 2020

The scheduled repair in Cedar Point was completed approximately 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11.  As our protocol, a System Pressure Advisory has been issued by the General Manager until test results are received.  WCWC has disinfected and is flushing large amounts of water, but this advisory is a precaution and suggests that you vigorously boil water for one minute when using it for consumption.  This does not apply to bathing and handwashing (using soap).  The advisory typically is rescinded within 24-48 hours.

Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children aged 1-4, and it's the number two cause of unintentional death among those aged 5-24.
