BWA Causes and Recommendations

A precautionary boil water advisory is issued when there is a possibility that the water pressure in the water system dropped to such an extent that bacteria or foreign matter could have entered the water system. This may be caused by one or more of these reasons:

  • A water main break, repair, or system maintenance
  • Damage to water lines or systems due to a storm or hurricane or other event
  • An electrical power outage to a water plant or facility

A mandatory boil water advisory is issued when sample testing has confirmed the presence of microorganisms in the water supply that can cause illness.

Regardless of the type of boil water advisory issued, customers should bring water to a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute prior to using for drinking, food preparation, or cooking during the advisory period. After precautionary BWAs triggered by water outages, main breaks or repairs, it is also recommended that customers flush water lines for three minutes after water returns to remove any air and possible sediments from the lines.
