VERMONTVILLE, Mich. (WLNS) – Residents in Vermontville are being told to not drink their water without boiling it first.
Due to a drop in pressure in the water supply, bacterial contamination may have occurred in the water system. This is just a precaution.
What you need to do:
Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Continue using boiled or bottled water until further notice.
This boil water notice shall remain in effect until results from the sampling verify the water is safe to drink. Customers will be advised when the boil water advisory has been lifted.
General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1(800) 426-4791.
