What to do

Loss of water pressure can allow harmful bacteria into the water supply. The bacteria can make you sick. They are a particular concern to people with weakened immune systems.

While the boil notice is in effect, customers should bring water to a rolling boil for one minute, allow it to cool before using, and store the cooled water in a clean container with a cover or use bottled water.

Flush cold water taps for five minutes if you see discolored water. Also, flush your refrigerator water line and discard any ice.
