BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Temporary water service has been restored to several homes in the Boise foothills following concerns about unstable ground.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Q2sW0y ) that Suez Water spokesman Mark Snider says the homes have been connected to an above ground water line that was installed Saturday.

The company had shut off water to the homes on Wednesday over concerns of a breakage in the underground line.

One home was evacuated after it was deemed too dangerous to live in.

Crews are looking into the hillside’s movement and working to determine how to stabilize the area.



Developer Richard Pavelek said in a statement that appropriate engineering, geotechnical and soil experts were hired during the building process. The studies were approved by the city of Boise and the Ada County Highway District.
