Boil Water Advisory-Rainelle Water Dept

Boil Water Advisory-Rainelle Water Dept-from 381 Pennsylvania Ave to 581 Pennsylvania Ave until further notice. 

If notified of a boil water advisory, DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and cool before using; or use bottled water. You should use boil or bottled water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation until you are notified that the advisory has been lifted.  
We also recommend the following steps:
  • Throw away uncooked food or beverages or ice cubes if made with tap water during the day of the advisory
  • Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking
  • Do not swallow water while you are showering or bathing
  • Provide pets with boiled water after cooling
  • Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using bottled water; Most home water filters will not provide adequate protection from microorganisms
  • Use only boiled water to treat minor injuries;  When showering or bathing, avoid allowing the water to come in contact with an open wound
  • Do not wash salad items with tap water during the period; Use bottled water or freshly boiled and cooled tap water
