BOIL ADVISORY INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Bring all water used for drinking, food preparation and cooking to a rolling boil for 1 minute.
  2. Do not use chilled water lines on refrigerators.
  3. Do not use ice from automatic ice machines.

NEARBY DISRUPTED LINES – NO BOIL – WATER IS SAFE

  • Some nearby water lines may have been disrupted causing discolored water or air in the lines – the water is safe. 
  • Boiling is not necessary. Only the locations noted above are advised to boil water. 

Stirred lines will clear as sediment settles, time passes and additional water passes through the system. 

  • Open faucet to remove air from the lines.
  • Check COLD water periodically to determine if water has returned to normal.
