Officials did not detail what caused the problem, and it’s not clear when the problem will be resolved.
A boil water notice means it is recommended that those affected do not consume water from a tap unless it is boiled for five minutes, and then allowed to cool in a sealed container. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation as boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.MORE NEWS: Michigan Prisons Follows CDC, Allows COVID-Positive Staff To Work After 5 Days With Mild Symptoms
