Boil Advisory Update: 11/17/2022
We received results from yesterday's water samples and they are all clean. The boil advisory is still in effect and we are cautiously optimistic about the samples we have submitted today. We will have results tomorrow afternoon.
We need two days of negative results to lift the boil advisory. City crews will continue to inject chlorine into the water system and flush the waterlines.
Just as a reminder, DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. It is not necessary to boil water for showers, wash clothing, etc. if there is no potential to consume the water.
REMEMBER to update your phone number with City utilities, 208-785-8600 x-2, in order to receive City calls.
