This boil water notice will remain in effect until at least 9 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8.

The department would like to thank the affected businesses for their patience and apologize for any inconvenience.

IMPORTANT: Boil Water Instructions:

When water service is restored, please flush all cold-water faucets for approximately 2-3 minutes. Before drinking water from the city's public water system, bring the water to a rolling boil for approximately one minute. This will help destroy bacteria that may have contaminated the drinking water. Caution: Use extreme caution with boiling water to avoid burns. Allow the water to cool before using.

Hot tap water is not a substitute for boiling water. Water from a water heater is not intended for drinking.

Additionally, if your freezer has an automatic icemaker, discard all the ice cubes and turn off the icemaker until the "boil water" notice is lifted.
