Chinook City Water Unfit to Drink

Posted: Updated:

A Blaine County Health Alert Network Advisory has been sent out, declaring the water in the city of Chinook unfit for consumption.

The water was off until earlier Wednesday evening after a main-line break outside the drinking water plant in Chinook. While the water has since been turned back on, Blaine County Emergency Management say's it's still unsafe to drink until the DEQ completes testing on it.

As of now, they are unsure of when the water will be declared drinkable, but residents can go to the Blaine County Fairgrounds Commercial Building at the times listed below for drinking water made available at no cost.  

Email from Blair County:

Drinking water will be available at the Blaine County Fairgrounds Commercial Building for residents of the City of Chinook served by the city water system. Each residential customer will need to check-in at the Commercial Building to receive water and sign a receipt of delivery. The water is available at no cost for residential customers of the Chinook City Water System.

American Red Cross recommendations are for 1 gallon of water per person per day for drinking and hand washing.

Bottled water will be available 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM Wednesday evening. Distribution hours for Thursday will be 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
