HEED PRECAUTIONARY/MANDATORY BOIL WATER NOTICES
If a notice is issued, disinfect your water by either boiling for one minute, adding one-eighth teaspoon of bleach or using purification tablets (purchase at outdoor retailer).
EVACUATING? HERE’S WHAT TO DO
Shut off the home’s water valve (typically found on the exterior wall of the home). Some water heaters may also need to be shut off. Check with the manufacturer.
Customers with a low pressure sewer system pump on their property are asked to shut off the breaker to their grinder pump (located in the dedicated electric box outside of the home).
