Potable water served by The Town of Jamesville has been restored to capacity.  

Samples collected from multiple locations within the system have been analyzed by a State Certified Laboratory and found to be free of coliform bacteria.

Based on the results and the continued presence of consistent pressure throughout the system, the system pressure advisory has been lifted. 

Persons served by the system are urged to continue to manage their water usage and consumption and report any leaks or problems to the Town of Jamesville.

The Town of Jamesville issued a Boil Water Advisory for all customers on Monday, after a damaged fire hydrant began causing low water pressure and outages.

Jamesville officials say they’re isolating the broken hydrant from the rest of the water system, so they can fix it.

This is causing periods of low or no water pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system.

When water service is restored, all Jamesville water customers are advised to boil all water for one minute if it will be used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation), or use bottled water instead.

Jamesville officials urge customers to conserve water during this time by using as little water as possible.

The Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

Anyone with questions on their water service or the Boil Water Advisory should call the Town of Jamesville Water Department, at 252-792-5006, or call the Water Emergency Line at 252-809-2174.
