EMA providing water to Florence community

FLORENCE — The Florence/Lauderdale Emergency Management Agency has set up a distribution site to provide for customers of the Chisholm Heights Water District as a boil water advisory remains in effect.

The EMA reported on its social media page that bottled and non-potable water is available at Rogers Chapel Church on Alabama Highway 17 near County Road 8. Customers wanting non-potable, or non-drinking, water are asked to bring their own container.

A proof of residency is required, such as a water bill, to obtain water that is available while it lasts.


Workers made an additional repair Monday to a main line leak along the highway, according to EMA.

“Please continue to observe the Boil Advisory and conserve water as the system begins to come back online. A wireless message to the effected area will be sent when the Boil Advisory is lifted,” the EMA stated on its social media page.

A boil water advisory was announced Saturday afternoon.

“Once repairs are made, the system will be checked and time will be given for the tanks to fill prior to opening the system back up to residential users,” the EMA statement said. “No specific time frame is available.”

The boil water advisory will remain in effect until the system is operational and water testing can be completed.
