Linglestown Gazette: LP likely to lose water service due to flooding

LP likely to lose water service due to flooding

I called United Water PA after a neighbor told me that she was told water service in the Linglestown area would be turned off at 7 pm tonight.

A United Water spokesperson said information about when an outage could occur did not come from the company, but service likely will be cut off when flood waters cover the pumps at their 6th Street station in Susquehanna Township. The pump station was beginning to flood in the 3 pm hour today, she said.

Also, United Water can not predict how long an outage would last. Dauphin County officials issued an advisory today that suggested stocking up enough water for 72 hours.

I made a water run early this afternoon and purchased water at Weis, Target and Home Depot. The Giant on Route 22 was sold out at the time of my visit.

Midstate supermarkets, including Giant, Karns Foods, Wegmans and Weis Markets report they have bottled water in stock with more shipments arriving, according to a report published by The Patriot-News this afternoon.

United Water PA issued a boil-water advisory Thursday evening for Lower Paxton Township and other areas.
