Tips for drinking water use during a boil order:

Boiling: Bring the water to a rolling boil for at least 3 minutes. Laboratory data show this is adequate to make the water safe for drinking

Washing Dishes

You may use a dishwasher if it has a sanitizing cycle. If it does not have a sanitizing cycle, or you are not sure if it does, you may hand wash dishes and utensils by following these steps:

  1. Wash the dishes as you normally would.
  2. As a final step, immerse the dishes for at least one minute in lukewarm water to which a teaspoon of bleach per gallon of water has been added.
  3. Allow the dishes to completely air dry.
  4. You may also used boiled and cooled water or bottled water.

Bathing and Showering

Young children should be given sponge baths rather than put in a bathtub where they might ingest the tap water. Adults or children should take care not to swallow water when showering.

Brushing your Teeth

Use only disinfected or boiled water for brushing your teeth.
