Boil water alert issued for Wood Village
The City of Wood Village issued a boil water notice Monday morning.
Officials of the Multnomah County village about 12 miles from Portland said the water pressure dropped below 20 PSI, and residents should not drink tap water without first boiling it for at least one minute.
This notice applies to the Upper Pressure System in Wood Village, they said.
On their website, officials said the city was performing maintenance on their reservoirs when the well supplying water to that area of the city shut down for about 90 minutes. The well came back online.
State law requires a boil water order to be issued, and test results are expected within 24 hours.
