Boil Water Advisory
On Friday April 13, 2018, we discovered that the center of the dome on the old water tank had broken through and fallen into the tank leaving the tank open to infiltration. We immediately called the Department of Health (DOH) who ordered a Boil
Water Advisory. We have ordered parts necessary to take the tank off line. As soon as possible, our Village Crew in consort with our engineering firm will be installing 2 pressure relief valves that will enable us to take the old water tower off line, and we will pressurize the system with the pumps. Since the old tank will be isolated from the system, we hope to be able to lift the Boil Water Advisory. As soon as we have clearance from the DOH we will lift the Boil Water Advisory. In the meantime, work is progressing on the construction of the new water tank which, if all goes well, will be in service early this summer.

Fact Sheet About What to Do During a Boil Water Advisory
Boiling 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.
