A BOIL WATER ADVISORY is in effect for consumers of Columbia Adair Utilities District for customers
from the Square to Bomar Heights, any side roads on the left side of Burkesville St., all side roads off of Tutt St., all side roads off Bomar Heights, Harvey St., and S Reed St.
The advisory has been issued due to tying in new water line. Following such an event, the potential exists for bacteriological contamination of the water supply therefore this Boil Water Advisory has been issued as a precautionary measure. Until further notice, boil all water used for drinking and cooking, bringing the water to a rolling boil for three minutes before using.

This advisory will remain in effect until the situation has been corrected and test results have shown the water to be of an acceptable quality.

Promontory Point: Burkesville Street Phase, Downtown Project

2018-03-15 - Tutt ST/KY 2287 & Burkesville ST/KY 55/61/& 80 concurrency, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
Remarkable progress, overnight, occurred in the one block of Tutt Street to Grissom Street in the late hours of last night to early this morning, when Barry Stotts and his Stotts Construction Co, Inc crew tied in the new waterline from this point to the Public Square. The event marks approximately - within 50 feet or within the frontage of Dog Gone Classy - the halfway point on the Burkesville Street Phase of the Downtown Project. One block of Tutt Street was closed at 10pmCT to protect the workers and was complete with the announcement of a Boil Water Advisory early this morning. In the right foreground is a historical marker remembering the invasion of Columbia by John Hunt Morgan in the Civil War. One can't help but do a time warp and wonder if Morgan would have made it to Coffey's Cave, much less capture Columbia and continue to Tebb's Bend had he been met by all the construction equipment mobilized for this 2018 construction phase, and had there been a vanguard of units of Mahindra's with hay lances. The army would have turned tail and been back in Tennessee in no time flat! - EW
