Water for drinking, cooking and ice-making must be boiled and cooled before consumption. The water should be brought to a “vigorous boil” and then boiled for two minutes, according to Aqua Water. You can also buy bottled water from the store if you do not wish to boil water.

Aqua Water Supply is also asking customers to reduce water usage until this issue is resolved.

The system will be flushed with chlorinated water and water samples will be tested. Once test results are received, Aqua Water Supply will notify customers through telephone messages and local news when it’s no longer necessary to boil water.
