Boil-water advisory for Weverton, Yourtee Road residents still in effect

August 26, 2011

BRUNSWICK, Md. — The boil-water alert issued for residents of Yourtee Road and Weverton in Washington County remains in effect, Brunswick City Administrator Rick Weldon announced Friday morning.

Earlier Friday, the city erroneously announced that full water service from Yourtee Springs to all residents was being restored. Weldon blamed the error  on "confusion in communication between the testing laboratory and our city water treatment staff over which tests were completed."

A tanker truck with fresh drinking water is available between of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at Himes Country Store, 1325 Weverton Road, for any user of the Brunswick water system, he said.

The line carrying water from Yourtee Spring to Brunswick-area residents was damaged during Tuesday's earthquake.
