What should I do?
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Continue using boiled or bottled water until
What happened? What is being done?
These precautionary actions are being taken due to the loss of water pressure in the water
distribution system caused by a shutdown for the repair of a water main on 7/30/2023,
Whenever a water system loses pressure for any significant length of time, precautionary
measures are recommended.
Once the water department gets pressure restored, water staff will be taking other remedial
actions such as flushing and collecting bacteriological samples from affected parts of the
system. The samples will be collected to determine that the water quality meets the state
drinking water standards. We will inform you when tests show no bacteria, and you no longer need to boil your water.
This boil water notice shall remain in effect until results from the sampling verify the water is
safe to drink. 2 samples 24 hours apart for a total of 48 hours are required to be absent of
bacteria. Customers will be advised when the boil water advisory has been lifted.
