Trezevant Pump Failure Prompts Precautionary Boil Order
TREZEVANT (July 4) — A minor pump failure Wednesday evening caused some water outages and prompted a temporary boil order to be issued to Trezevant water customers.
According to Water Supervisor Danny Connell, it was discovered just after 7 p.m. that one of the town’s pumps had hung up and the pressure had dropped below a certain level.
Following state guidelines, the officials issued a boil order as a precautionary measure. The pump was replaced after approximately an hour and pressure restored shortly thereafter.
Trezevant sent a water sample to state officials, who tested it for 24 hours to ensure there were no contaminants.
Connell iterated that at no point was there a leak in the system and was therefore no serious threat of contamination. He monitored the system through the night after restoring pressure.
Upon receiving results from the state’s test, the boil order was lifted early Friday afternoon.
