City of Archie is issuing a water boil advisory

Due to the water outage on August 21, 2020, the City of Archie is issuing a water boil advisory until the necessary tests and results have been returned. The results are expected within two days.

What precautions should I take if under a boil water order or advisory?

The following steps need to be taken:

Boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use. Use only water that has been boiled for drinking, diluting fruit juices, all other food preparation and brushing teeth.

Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic ice maker. Remake ice cubes with water that has been boiled.

Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.

Note: Let water cool sufficiently before drinking (approximately 110 degrees F).
