Parts of Sunrise Still Under Boil-Water Advisory

Hey, parts of Sunrise!

There's poop in your water!


So please be advised that a boil water advisory is still in effect for you.

According to city officials, several hundred Sunrise water customers are being asked to keep boiling their water, or to use bottled water, after a water main break over the weekend.

The water main broke Sunday near the intersection of NW 19th Street and 60th Avenue.

Specifically, the advisory extends from NW 11th Street north to NW 24th Street and from NW 58th Terrace west to NW 68th Avenue.

Work crews were able to replace the broken pipe and restored the water flow early Monday, but the Sunrise customers who were without water into Monday morning might have been affected and should boil their water for now until the all-clear has been given.

The boil includes any tap water that is used for drinking, cooking, cleaning, washing, brushing teeth, or making ice or baby formula.

Residents are also being advised to use bottled water, if possible.

If you don't have bottled water, make sure to boil your tap water for a good minute before use.
