Boil Advisory Issued For Jackson Twp. Development
Pennsylvania American Water today issued a precautionary boil water advisory for customers in the Sutton Hills development, Jackson Township, due to low tank levels caused by a water main break.
Crews are currently working to locate the broken main and isolate the leak. Once the break is isolated, repairs will be underway. Approximately 65 customers are affected.
Pennsylvania American Water experienced a loss in positive water pressure due to a main break. A loss of positive water pressure is a signal of the existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through backflow by back-pressure or back- siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance that the water might contain disease-causing organisms.
This notice applies to customers along the following streets:
• Blueberry Hill • Cross Creek Road • Deer Hill Road

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and cool before using; or use bottled water. You should use boil or bottled water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice. Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea and associated headaches.
