WATER SHUT OFF TOMORROW, Thursday, July 12th 9100 & 9200 blocks of Sheridan – BOIL ORDER REQUIRED


An advisory to boil any water used for consumption purposes due to the presence of bacteria is called a “Boil Order”. In such a case all water should be boiled for five minutes prior to drinking, brushing teeth, washing fruit or vegetables to be eaten raw, making ice cubes or juices or any other use where the water will not go through boiling or baking process. (Automatic drip coffee machines do not boil water). Health officers are sent copies of boil orders, and DES attempts to call the local health officer in advance of issuing the order.
