Boil Water notice for 130 Oregon Gresham homes

 

The City of Gresham issued a Boil Water Notice on Saturday, impacting about 130 homes served by the Gabbert Hill Reservoir.

Saturday morning, a pump at the site failed, causing homes to lose water pressure, according to a City of Gresham spokesperson.

The water was not thought to be contaminated, but lack of water pressure could allow contamination into water pipes.

Customers in the area were asked not to drink water, or use it for consumption purposes, without boiling it first, city officials said.

The impacted area is served by the Gabbert Hill Reservoir, which provides water to approximately 130 homes and can be found on a map here.

Impacted customers should:

  • Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute
  • Allow the water to cool before using
  • Store the cooled water in a clean container with a cover

 

Customers should use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water for:

  • Drinking
  • Preparing baby formula and food
  • Brushing teeth
  • Washing fruits and vegetables
  • Washing dishes
  • Making ice
