Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water certified by the New York State Department of Health. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making
ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills most bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other
symptoms. Inadequate disinfection may pose a special health risk for infants, young children,
some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems. The symptoms above are
not caused just by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they
persist, you may want to seek medical advice.

What is being done?

Authorities say that you will be informed when bacteriological tests show that no harmful bacteria are present, and you no longer need to boil your water.
