———

Water main break has caused the entire Town to have no water or a small amount of water pressure. A boil water notice is in effect until further notice. 

Under a boil water advisory, it is recommended that water be boiled for several minutes in advance of consumption or use.

Bring your water to a rolling boil for one minute to use water for:

Drinking

Brushing your teeth

Making ice

Washing your hands before eating

Washing dishes, cooking surfaces, raw foods, or rinsing food

Preparing other drinks like baby bottles, kool-aid, sun tea, ice tea, frozen juices etc.


Tips on Boiling Water

Fill a pot or pan with cold water.

Start timing after the water boils. (You may see little bubbles forming at the edges of the pot; these are just air bubbles from the water; when steady streams of big bubbles are sent up from the bottom of the pot, your water is starting to boil.)

Boil for one full minute.

Boil as much water in a pot as you can comfortably lift without spilling. Caution should always be exercised when handling boiling water to minimize the risk of burns.
