Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory for Limited Set of Customers in NW Quadrant

April 22, 2022

The City of Cedar Rapids is asking customers at the addresses listed below to consider boiling water used for personal consumption as a precautionary measure. If you are pregnant, nursing, or have infants under 6 months of age, USE BOTTLED WATER ONLY.

Affected Addresses on Julia Anne Dr. NW:

10, 15, 16, 19, 20, 23, 24, 28, 31, 32, 35, 36, 39, 40, 43, 44, 47, 48, 51, 52, 55, 56, 59, 60, 63, 67, 68, 71, 74

And 3718 1st Ave. NW

A water main break on Julia Anne Dr. NW between Sue Ln. NW and 1st Ave. NW has caused a disruption to normal distribution operation, which has created a potential for bacteria contamination to occur. We are advising residents at the listed addresses only to follow these steps for added protection.

  • Bring water to a boil
  • Let it rapidly boil for at least 1 minute
  • Allow to cool completely before consuming
  • DO NOT USE BOILED WATER IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, NURSING OR PREPARING FORMULA FOR INFANTS – USE ONLY BOTTLED WATER

Repairs are complete, pressure has been restored, flushing of the affected area has occurred, chlorine levels are being monitored, and bacteria samples will be collected for analysis. We anticipate completed results of bacteria analysis by Sunday, April 24, at 12 p.m., noon, at which time this advisory will be either lifted or extended. Please check the website at CityofCR.com for up-to-date notifications, or call the Cedar Rapids Water Department at 319-286-5910.

The water department stresses that this Advisory is PRECAUTIONARY and is limited to the addresses listed above.

WATER IN ALL OTHER AREAS IS SAFE TO CONSUME

Date distributed: April 22, 2022
