As always, whenever a Boil Water Advisory is in effect, residents are asked to boil their water if using the City water supply for cooking, cleaning or drinking, making ice, washing dishes and food preparation until further notice. This kills bacteria and other organisms that can be hazardous to your health. You may also purchase bottled water during the advisory.
