What is a boil water notice?
A  Boil Water Notice is a preventative measure issued to protect the  health of the community from water borne infectious agents.  


What should I do under a Boil Water Notice?
Create a supply of water for cooking, drinking and tooth brushing.

 *Boil the water for 2-3 minutes.
 *Cool the water then place in clean containers for use or refrigerate.

 Hot  soapy water can be used for dishwashing and kitchen/bathroom surface  cleaning.  As a precaution, you can add one tablespoon of bleach per gallon of  water.

 Laundry water does not need to be treated.  

 Unless otherwise instructed, water for showering does not need to be treated.

 If  water is not safe for drinking because of bacteria, hand washing with  soap and water followed by disinfection with an alcohol based  disinfectant is recommended.
