From staff reports
Facilities Management has informed the Athens campus that there is a boil order in effect for West Green and Baker University Center.
The boil order encompasses the entire green, including Factory Street, Station Street, Depot Street and Riverside Drive. It is effective until 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9.
Residential Housing will provide West Green residents with bottled water during this time.
According to the City of Athens’ Boil Order Instructions* website, people should boil all water at a full, rolling boil for three minutes prior to drinking, cooking, or brushing their teeth. Boil water before making coffee, as coffee makers do not reach a full boil.
Those with an icemaker should turn it off and dispose of all ice made within 24 hours after the boil order has been lifted.
If you have any questions, please contact the Work Center at 593-2911.
