Precautionary Boil Water Advisory in Place

Aug 10, 2023

Last night, a water curb stop valve was damaged by a large motorhome, resulting in the rupture of the watermain. The watermain was repaired before midnight, but this emergency requires the issuing of a Precautionary Boil Water Advisory, effective as of today, Aug 10.

Precautionary Boil Water Advisories are issued when contaminants could have entered the water system, but boiling will effectively remove them. Water being ingested in any way should be boiled vigorously for at least 1 full minute. Water for bathing and cleaning does not need to be boiled. This Advisory will be lifted, and customers notified, once testing determines your water remains safe to drink. Please share this with others in your household and community.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your cooperation as we work to maintain your water services. Thank you.

Precautions During a Boil Water Advisory

During a Boil Water Advisory, tap water used for the following purposes should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one (1) minute prior to use.

  • Drinking and ice cubes
  • Liquids or food (e.g. tea or soup) that will not be boiled for at least one (1) minute
  • Washing fruits and vegetables being eaten raw
  • Brushing teeth or cleaning dental and medical appliances
  • Preparing baby food and infant formula
  • Bathing infants

Adults, adolescents, and older children may shower, bathe, or wash using tap water, but should avoid swallowing water. It’s recommended to sponge bathe infants if using tap water. Tap water may be used for dishes washed by machine but add bleach to water used for dishes washed by hand. Water used for other household purposes does not need to be boiled.

This Advisory will be rescinded once the water has been demonstrated safe to drink. Please check this News & Notices page for updates. Should you have questions, please contact Corix Customer Care.
