Local water contamination

If you live in Valparaiso you may want to boil your water before drinking it. A precautionary boil water notice has been issues for people who live on the south side of Tom's Bayou Bridge. The area includes John Sims Parkway and South Bayshore Drive to Indian Shores and South Bayshore Drive to Louisiana Avenue and Old Highway 10. According to a letter to residents during an emergency water main repair, water was turned off yesterday for several hours. The loss of water pressure from the water outage made it possible for contaminants to have entered the line.  But there is no suspected contamination for the water system at this time, but city officials ask customers to boil their water just in case.
