Some frequently asked questions are below:
What should I do?
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING FIRST.
Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
