What is a Boil Alert or Boil Advisory?
A boil alert is issued when the pressure is lost in the water line and there is the possibility of any foreign substance entering the system.
Water to be used for drinking, making any prepared drink, making ice, cooking, washing dishes, or brushing the teeth should be boiled. All stored water, drink or ice made recently from this supply should be discarded.
What should I do?
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST.
INSTRUCTIONS: Boil the water vigorously for at least one to three full minutes to kill any disease-causing bacteria or microorganisms that may be present in the water. A microwave oven may be used to boil the water. Let the water cool before using or use bottled water.
YOU WILL BE INFORMED WHEN THE BOIL ALERT IS LIFTED.
