*************Until further notice assume there is a BOIL WATER ADVISORY***************
The boil water advisory will remain in effect until tests verify the absence of coliform bacteria in the water samples. As long as the boil water advisory remains in effect, boiled or bottled water should be used for all human consumption purposes, including drinking, making ice, food preparation, baby formula preparation, washing dishes, and brushing teeth.
Before using tap water, bring the water to a full roiling boil for one minute and let cool.
