Boil Notice

Repairs have been made to restore water to customers. The Boil Notice will remain in effect as a precaution before drinking the water until samples come back from the laboratory “all clear”.  Water is safe to use for other purposes… shower, washing etc.  Water may be cloudy at times.  If you have any questions, please contact city hall.

How long do you have to boil water to make it safe?
Bring water to a FULL ROLLING BOIL for 1 MINUTE, then allow the water to COOL BEFORE USE. Because water may take 30 minutes to cool, plan ahead. Make up a batch of boiled water in advance so you will not be tempted to use it hot and risk scalds or burns. Boiled water may be used for drinking, cooking, and washing.
