Whitestown Municipal Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water order for Whitestown water customers east of I-65 and south of Whitestown Parkway. This includes the neighborhoods of Royal Run, Maple Grove, and Alinium.
Around 11 a.m. on Thursday, January 27 a water main break occurred along Whitestown Parkway at Veterans Drive.
In consultation with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, it has been determined that these Whitestown Municipal Utility customers should boil their drinking water.
This precautionary measure is required by state law since the water pressure dropped below 20 PSI.
These Whitestown Municipal Utility customers should boil their water for five minutes before using it for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation. Water can be used for showering, cleaning, and flushing without boiling.
“The impacted customers are currently without water. We anticipate service to be restored around 7 p.m. Thursday evening,” said Whitestown Public Works Director Danny Powers. “All other Whitestown water customers may still experience fluctuations in water pressure during this time.”
This boil advisory is expected to be lifted on Saturday morning. Follow the Town of Whitestown on social media, subscribe to text alerts at whitestown.in.gov/alerts, or visit whitestown.in.gov for the latest updates.
