The city notified consumers on Thursday, Jan. 6, of a loss of pressure and issued a boil advisory. The city has now fixed the problem, and its Drinking Water Advisory has ended.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your patience,” the city said in a news release.

What should I do?

You can stop boiling your water and can now use and drink your water. Flush your plumbing system. Run each cold-water faucet for five minutes or until the water is noticeably colder. Use your tap water as usual. For more information about flushing, visit page 3 of the Community Drinking Water Advisory Guidance

What may be the health effects?

The incident is resolved. However, if you experience unusual symptoms and they persist, it is recommended you seek medical advice. People at increased risk should seek advice from their health care providers about drinking water.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
