The Exeter-Merritt Water Cooperative has a boil order in effect for persons living on Bangert Rd. in Bluffs as well as Rt 100 South of Bluffs. Pressure dropped below 20 lbs therefore a boil order is recommended until further notice.
Please do not drink or cook with the water without boiling it first. Let it boil for at least 5 minutes and let it cool before using or use bottled water. Residents should flush their lines during and after the boil order and should remove/clean faucet screens.
The Exeter-Merritt Water Cooperative has all pvc water mains and plastic service lines to each meter pit. If the customer has any lead pipes or fittings in their home, they should take extra precautions and flush all the lines within their home to avoid any possible contamination of lead. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office at 217-754-3090 or 217-370-0562.
