Lewiston, ID- L.O.I.D. experienced a domestic mainline break on Bryden Avenue early this morning. Field crews have reduced the out flow to a manageable rate and will
begin mainline replacement to resolve the issue.
There could be water across the road until the repair is made. LOID crews will be
working in the vicinity, please consider an alternative route when possible.
Although this has been managed without an increase in water velocity, there is still
a chance for discolored water to be present in the domestic water system.
Once the repair is completed, customers who are experiencing discolored water are
asked to run cold water preferably at the lowest point in your house, in the tub or
the kitchen sink for 5-10 minutes. If the water does not clear, please wait between
30-60 minutes and repeat flushing your lines.
