Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Spencer Municipal Utilities has issued a drinking water advisory for a few neighborhoods affected by a water main break. Spencer Municipal Utilities Marketing and Community Relations Manager Amanda Gloyd said repairs have been completed and all affected property owners have been notified at this time.

Its on East 16th Street, Elmwood Drive, East 17th, East 18th and Ninth Avenue East, its kind of in the northeast part of Spencer, Gloyd said. Now those customers are in a drinking water advisory, that generally takes about 48 hours, until the testing comes back complete. Were recommending to boil the water before using it for drinking or to use an alternative, if customers have any questions they can contact our service center at 580-5800. Well notify those customers when its canceled.
