What does Boil Water Notice Mean? FAQ

Boiling water
To boil water

• Fill a pot with water.

• Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.

• Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.

• Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.

• Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.

Disinfecting water

If you are unable to boil your water, disinfect it instead.

If tap water is clear:

• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).

• Add 1/8 teaspoon (8 drops or about 0.75 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon

(16 cups) of water.

• Mix well and wait 30 minutes or more before drinking.

• Store disinfected water in clean container with a cover.

If tap water is cloudy:

• Filter water using clean cloth.

• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).

• Add 1/4 teaspoon (16 drops or 1.5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon (16 cups) of water.

• Mix well and wait 30 minutes or more before drinking.

• Store disinfected water in clean container with a cover.

Remember that containers may need to be sanitized before using them to store safe water.
To sanitize containers:

• Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).

• Make a sanitizing solution by mixing 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach in 1 quart (32 ounces, 4 cups, or about 1 liter) of water.

• Pour this sanitizing solution into a clean storage container and shake well, making sure that the solution coats the entire inside of the container.

• Let the clean storage container sit at least 30 seconds, and then pour the solution out of the container.

• Let empty container air dry OR rinse it with clean water that has already been made safe, if available. Never mix bleach with ammonia or other cleaners. Open windows and doors to get fresh air when you use bleach.

Water filters

Boil tap water even if it is filtered. Most kitchen and other household water filters typically do not remove bacteria or viruses.

Preparing and cooking food

• Wash all fruits and vegetables with boiled water that has cooled or bottled water.

• Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute before adding food to cook.

• Use boiled water when preparing drinks, such as coffee, tea, and lemonade

• Wash food preparation surfaces with boiled water.

Feeding babies and using formula

• Breastfeeding is best. Continue to breastfeed. If breastfeeding is not an option:

• Use ready-to-use baby formula, if possible.

• Prepare powdered or concentrated baby formula with bottled water. Use boiled water if you do not have bottled water. Disinfect water for baby formula if you cannot boil your water (see above for directions on how to use bleach to disinfect water).

• Wash and sterilize bottles and nipples before use.

• If you cannot sterilize bottles, try to use single-serve, ready-to-feed bottles.

Ice

• Do not use ice from ice trays, ice dispensers, or ice makers.

• Throw out all ice made with tap water.

• Make new ice with boiled or bottled water.

Bathing and showering

Be careful not to swallow any water when bathing or showering.

Use caution when bathing babies and young children. Consider giving them a sponge bath to reduce the chance of them swallowing water.

Brushing teeth

Brush teeth with boiled or bottled water. Do not use untreated tap water.

Washing dishes

Household dishwashers generally are safe to use if the water reaches a final rinse temperature of at least 150 degrees or if the dishwasher has a sanitizing cycle.

To wash dishes by hand:

• Wash and rinse the dishes as you normally would using hot water.

• In a separate basin, add 1 teaspoon of unscented household liquid bleach for each gallon of warm water.

• Soak the rinsed dishes in the water for at least one minute.

• Let the dishes air dry completely.

Laundry

It is safe to do laundry as usual.

Pets

Pets can get some of the same diseases as people. It is a good idea to give them boiled water that has been cooled.

Dear Neighbor:

 

From time to time, Belmont Terrace Mutual Water Co. must flush out the water system in order to remove sand and other sediment from the lines.  We’ll be flushing the system on:

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2021 starting at 9:00 A.M.  We should be finished by 2:00 P.M.

 

Please DO NOT TURN ON ANY WATER during this time.  If you do, it is likely that sediment will be drawn into your home’s water lines.

 

We will place flush signs the day/night before at Danmar (near church), Norlee near Bella Vista, and Danmar at Ragle.  We will place orange cones next to all the fire hydrants Saturday morning before we start flushing.  The cones will stay in place until we are finished flushing.  Once ALL the cones are removed from in front of the fire hydrants water will be available to use.  Once we are finished, an alert will be sent on NextDoor.com saying that we are done.

 

If you do experience cloudy water, please run a backyard hose or faucet for 5-10 minutes to help flush out the sediment.  If you have problems after that, please call the Water Operators at 707-820-7787 or 707-820-7633.

 

We will be trying to limit the time and amount of water we are flushing.  We need to do the flush for water quality issues.

What does Boil Water Advisory Mean? – FAQ

General Questions

Q: What is a Boil Water Advisory?

A: Boil Water Advisory is a recommendation made to residents in a place to only drink tap water if it has been boiled for at least one minute. This recommendation is made to the town to protect the health of its people.

Q: When is a Boil Water Advisory recommended?

A: The Public Health Unit recommends Boil Water Advisories when there is known   contamination of the water supply OR when there is a risk of contamination in the water supply.

Q: What can I drink during a Boil Water Advisory?

A: You can drink tap water if it has been boiled for one minute. Cool and store all boiled water in a covered container. If you do not wish to boil your water, you may choose to buy commercially packaged water for drinking.

Q: How will I know when the Boil Water Advisory has been lifted?

A: The Public Health Unit will notify the community when the water is safe to drink without boiling. We will alert local media, institutions (schools, hospitals), restaurants, and community centres.

Q: I drank the water before I realized there was a Boil Water Advisory. Am I going to get sick?

A: The Boil Water Advisory has been recommended as a precaution.  If you drank the water before hearing of the advisory, your risk of becoming ill is low. However, if you begin to have fever, diarrhea or vomiting you should seek medical attention.  Advise your health care practitioner that you have consumed tap water during the Boil Water Advisory.

Q: I have a dishwasher.  Is it safe to use during a Boil Water Advisory?

A: If your dishwasher has a hot/sani-cycle then it can be used, it safely disinfects dishes.  If it does not have this setting, after the final cycle, soak dishes for 1 minute in a solution of 30ml (1 oz) of bleach mixed with 13.5 litres (3 gallons) of lukewarm water.  Let dishes air dry.

Q: Can I use the water for other purposes?

A: You can use the water for bathing as long as you do not drink it. Supervise babies and children during bathing to ensure that they do not drink the water.

Q: During a Boil Water Advisory, how come restaurants/food premises are still open?

A: When there is a Boil Water Advisory, restaurants/food premises are given very specific orders from the Health Unit as to how to operate.  These orders will ensure that the foods being serviced to the public remain safe.

Q: How long is boiled water safe to drink?

A: As long as the water is protected from contamination, it should remain safe to drink.   Once the water has been boiled, cover it and place it in the refrigerator for future consumption.

Q: Can my pets drink the water?

A: Pets should be provided boiled water, or water from an alternate source until the boil water advisory is lifted.

Q: Can I use my coffee maker?

A: Most residential coffee makers are not capable of maintaining high temperatures for a long enough period of time to make the water safe to drink.  Coffee and tea can be made by using water that has been brought to a rolling boil for a period of one minute or bottled water.  If using an automatic shut off kettle, make sure the water has boiled for one minute.

Q: Can I use my activated charcoal filter system (i.e. Brita or other brand names) to treat my water during a Boil Water Advisory?

A: No. These filters are not designed to remove contamination from an unsafe water supply. If you have run the water through your filter during the Boil Water Advisory it could be contaminated. It is recommended that you discard the filter and replace it with a new one once the Boil Water Advisory is over.

Q: How do I safely prepare my baby’s formula during the Boil Water Advisory?

A: Sterilize all bottles, rings, utensils and nipples in boiling water for two minutes.  The water mixed with the formula should boil at a rolling boil for at least two minutes, this will sterilize the water.
