Payson boil order lifted

May 11, 2019

Chief Scott Spencer with the Payson Fire Department confirmed at noon Saturday that the “boil order” for a portion of Payson residents, which was in place through Friday night after a water main break, has been lifted.

The boil order was originally put into place Friday morning as a precautionary measure, after a group performing some drilling accidentally hit a water main, Spencer said. The pipe that was accidentally bored into had to be replaced, and water samples were sent to the Utah Division of Water Quality for testing.

Spencer said the water samples came back as safe to drink for residents.
