City officials last reported that 400-500 people were impacted by the drinking water problem.

The advisory was first issued on December 23rd for all Copperhill Water System customers as a precautionary measure.

According to Copperhill City Clerk Amber Brooks, water pumps are down due to filter issues and that’s where their water is from.

Several bacteria samples have been collected throughout the distribution system and they were all negative.

Copperhill Water System says they are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and that it is no longer necessary to boil drinking water. They want to apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

As always, you may contact The City of Copperhill at 423-496-5141 with any comments or questions.
