Update* Water Boil Advisory

Public Notice: As of September 16th, 2022 5:00 PM the boil water advisory has been officially lifted for the following areas: Gumlog Road (Between Gumlog Grove Road to Rue Chalet)
Gumlog Grove Road, Gumlog Drive, Ridgeview Drive, and Ridgeview Court.

Water Boil Advisory

As a precaution, the City of Lavonia Water Department is issuing a boil advisory effective immediately (as of Thursday, September 15th, 2022 1:45 PM) due to a broken main water line. This boil advisory is to remain in effect until otherwise noted. Please follow our official page for updates and share this post.

The water boil advisory applies to the following streets in the City of Lavonia:

Gumlog Road (Between Gumlog Grove Road to Rue Chalet)
Gumlog Grove Road
Gumlog Drive
Ridgeview Drive
Ridgeview Court

It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, this includes but is not limited to: making ice (including fountain drinks), brushing teeth, food preparation, & the rinsing of foods.

It is advised that affected residents boil water for consumption for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute time limit starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Once the water has been boiled, you may improve the taste of the water by shaking it in a closed container, by pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.

Once this boil advisory has been lifted we will post an update on our page & website.

Thank you to our Water Department for working quickly and efficiently to correct this issue. We appreciate your hard work.
