The city and county are working together to try and repair the damaged waterline for the Eagle Creek subdivision.
"We're trying to get this done as quickly as possible for the safety of the residents," said James Sawyer, the city's public works director.
Starting today and tomorrow, a larger, temporary waterline will be installed to provide more water pressure and flow to the Eagle Creek homes. Construction will begin on a permanent waterline Monday and it is expected to take about two weeks.
The boil alert remains in effect for Eagle Creek residents and will remain so until they are notified by the city. Once the construction is complete, the boil alert will stay in effect while the city runs tests.
The waterline was damaged accidentally by county employees who were working on the Townline Road 151 bridge.
