The Drinking Water Bureau has issued the following Drinking Water Advisories and Boil Water
Orders. A Boil Water Notice is issued when a water system violates the bacteria (or Total Coliform)
standard and the presence
of E. Coli or fecal coliform is detected. This requires immediate notice to all consumers
informing them how to make their water safe for consumption. The Boil Water Order is lifted
only when sampling indicates that the water system is back in compliance with the standards for
Total Coiform Bacteria. For more information on coliform bacteria and health effects, view
this EPA web site. A Drinking
Water Advisory is issued when a non-microbiological drinking water standard,
such as for Nitrate, is violated.
