Clinton City Manager Roger Houck on Sunday said an apparent misrouting of information may be the reason at least one city resident received a “Notice of Water Advisory” this weekend.
“We have confirmed that the Web address and phone information included in the advisory is for Clinton, Utah…not Tennessee,” Houck said in a press release. “When you go to the Utah website, you will see that they, indeed, have issued an advisory for their area.”
A woman who lives on Mariner Point Drive in Clinton, Tennessee, told officials that she received an email and a phone call saying that local water samples had tested positive for E. coli, and customers should assume the water is unsafe to drink unless it is boiled.
As of Sunday, only one Clinton, Tennessee, resident had reported getting the Utah advisory, the press release said.
Houck said officials do not know how the message ended up in Tennessee, but he wanted to assure all Clinton Utilities Board customers that the city’s water supply is clean and safe to drink.
