CITY OF BLACKFOOT
BOIL ORDER STATUS
NOVEMBER 1, 2021
Last Thursday, October 28, City of Blackfoot Water Department injected chlorine into the water system to aid in cleaning the water mainlines, residential service lines, and commercial service lines. To help move water through the piping system, fire hydrants around the city were opened to flush the lines and move the chlorine through the 87 miles of pipe in the water system.
Water samples were taken at 5 different random locations in the city on Monday November 1 and sent to a test laboratory in Pocatello. We will receive results around noon on Tuesday November 2. When the sample results are returned, we will consult with the DEQ Compliance Officer for further direction.
Another update will follow on Tuesday, after the sample results are received, and we will distribute a status notification at that time. We thank all of you for your patience as we work through this issue.
