Village Water System has issued a boil advisory for some of its customers in the Haughton area.

The advisory was issued as a precaution after the water was turned off to allow workers to fix a leak.
TIPS FOR BOILING WATER
- It is recommended that all consumers in the impacted areas disinfect their water before consuming it. This includes water used for fountain drinks, making ice, brushing teeth or used in food preparation or rinsing of foods.
- Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil.
- The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another or by adding a pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
