BOIL WATER NOTICE | MARCH 13, 2014

BOIL WATER ALERT 

 

DATE OF NOTICE:  3/13/2014

 

Local officials today issued a precautionary boil water notice for customers who get their drinking water from the CITY OF BRANDON located in RANKIN COUNTY.  Darion Warren, spokesperson for the water system, stated this precautionary action was necessary because the system lost pressure due to water line improvements in relation to the Highway 471 Widening Project.  This affects approximately 375 customers in the Cornerstone Subdivision and the portion of Ambiance Subdivision that is serviced by the City of Brandon.

When a water distribution system loses pressure, contaminants can siphon back into the system.  Public health officials consider any system that has lost pressure contaminated until tests of the water prove otherwise.

As soon as pressure is restored to those customers affected, water system officials will begin collecting water samples for testing and recommend that consumers vigorously boil their water for one minute before it is consumed or use an alternate source for drinking/cooking.

Users will be notified when tests indicate the water is safe to drink.

 

CHECKLIST FOR SAFE WATER USE

DO NOT

 

Do not drink tap water while the water system is under boil water advisory.

Do not use ice made from water today.  Freezing will not necessarily kill harmful bacteria.

Do not use tap water to make drinks, juices or fountain soft drinks.

Do not use tap water to make tea or coffee unless the brewing process brings the water to a boil for at least one minute.

 

DO 

 

Wash your dishes in boiled water, or use paper plates for the next few days.

Wash your fruits and vegetables with boiled or bottled water since they may have been exposed to affected water from grocery store sprayers.

Wash your hands and bathe as usual.  Bathing is safe as long as no water is swallowed.

Brush your teeth with boiled or bottled water.

Cook with tap water if the food will be boiled for at least one minute.

 

AND REMEMBER:

 

Properly chlorinated water in swimming pools is safe.

Fish in aquariums are not affected.

 

Bringing water to a roiling boil for one minute will destroy all major types of harmful bacteria.
