Nelsonville BOIL ORDER for Grosvenor St from High St to the end of the street until further notice

Nelso Boil Order

The City of Nelsonville Water Department has issued a boil order until further notice Grosvenor St from High St to the end of the street.

Boil orders are put into place as a result of broken water lines or local flooding. When this happens, the drinking water may have been contaminated which can cause many illnesses.

Here are some tips to keep in mind, should you find yourself in this situation:

  • Bring water to a full boil, and boil for three minutes prior to use.
  • Use only boiled water for drinking, preparing food or baby formula.
  • To improve the flat taste of boiled water, keep cold in refrigerator.
  • Put a cup over your faucets as a reminder to not use tap water – not even to brush your teeth!
  • Instead of boiling water, you can disinfect water by adding one teaspoon unscented chlorine laundry bleach for every five gallons of water. Let stand 30 minutes before using.
  • Be sure to use sanitized food grade containers for storing water.
  • To disinfect water storage containers, pour a solution of one tablespoon of unscented chlorine bleach to a gallon of water into a container. Let the solution remain in the container for 10 minutes, then pour out the solution. Rinse with purified water.
  • Boiled or disinfected water can be stored for six months.
  • Dispose of ice cubes.
  • When washing dishes, make sure to sterilize dishes with a final dip in water that has one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water. Disposable tableware is an option during a boil order.
  • It is also recommended you sanitize hands when washing. Again, use one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water and rinse hand frequently by pouring rinse over the hands. Use paper towels to dry.
  • Water for bathing doesn’t need to be boiled. Supervise children to avoid water being ingested.

ATHENS CO EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING WED, 7/4/18, 12NOON TO 8PM, KEEP HYDRATED, LIMIT OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES, CHECK ON SENIORS!

Excessive Heat Warning

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from 12 noon to 8:00 PM Wednesday, 7/4/2018.

  • HEAT INDEX VALUES, Up to 106 due to temperatures in the mid 80s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.
  • TIMING, 12 Noon to 8 pm both days, highest values 2 to 7 pm.
  • IMPACTS, The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended exposure. Limited visibilities will make travel very difficult.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS; Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.   Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9-1-1.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
