During a boil water advisory:
Do not consume tap water that has not been disinfected, ice or drinks made from tap water that has not been disinfected, or raw foods rinsed with tap water that has not been disinfected. It is safe to shower and bathe as long as you do not swallow the water.
Disinfect water by:
Boiling at a rolling boil for at least 1 minute.
Safe alternative sources of potable water include bottled, treated or distilled water.
Once the boil advisory has been lifted:
Flush household pipes and faucets, as general guidance, run cold water faucets for 3 minutes each if they have not been used in the last 24 hours.
Flush home automatic ice makers: make three batches of ice cubes and discard all three batches.
Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle.
Flush drinking fountains and water coolers with direct water connections for 5 minutes.
