SPRINGVILLE — A boil advisory was issued on Friday for most of western Springville after one of the city’s water tanks was vandalized and found with golf balls inside.
According to city officials, it appears any contamination was minimal since all water is disinfected with chlorine.
If possible, residents are asked to use bottled water. However, if residents want to drink tap water, they should boil it for at least one minute before drinking, cooking or cleaning food with it.
The issue was discovered Friday morning and the tank was isolated soon after.
For part of the city, the water is still safe to drink, officials said.
Test results from the water samples taken Friday are expected to be available on Saturday afternoon.
Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to contact Springville police at 801-489-9421.
