Boil Water Notice Information

What you need to know if you receive a Boil Water Notice.

WHEN IS A BOIL NOTICE ISSUED?
Boil Order: A boil order is issued at the time of confirmed E.coli contamination in the distribution system.

WHO ISSUES THE BOIL NOTICE?
The boil notices are issued by the PWS based on their data and the request of DDW and the LHD.

WHEN TO LIFT A NOTICE
Boil Order: A boil order may be lifted after two satisfactory total coliform sampling events have been completed 24 hours apart to confirm that coliform is not present. For disinfecting systems this includes after chlorine residual levels have returned to baseline levels. In situations where the system does not regularly add chlorine then the notice is lifted based off of two rounds of samples and chlorine residuals are back to zero (normal operating level), and DDW/LHD requires a follow-up coliform sample after normal operating conditions.
