Water and Food Safety
Some simple steps to address water and food safety can ensure that you assess, discard or access safe sources of food and water. For homeowners, other systems such as septic, wells and household equipment may have in-line water that needs special attention, as well.
Many of the public drinking water supplies that were affected by the floods have been fixed. The systems currently on a boil or bottled water advisory are listed below. Residents in these areas should not drink tap water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for three (3) minutes, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Until further notice, boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing baby formula and food.
