Boil Water Order

September 14, 20171739Views

The Environmental Health Division is advising the public to heat all water being used from cisterns and taps for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes.  Please bring to a rolling boil for at least one minute.

If you are unable to boil water, you can disinfect the water by adding 8 drops of unscented household bleach to each gallon of water. The water should be mixed and allowed to stand at least 30 minutes before use. If the water is cloudy, health officials advise using 16 drops of bleach and a 30-minute waiting time.
