Boil-Water Alert advice

Advice provided by Mississippi Department of Health:

DO NOT...

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

- Do not drink from water fountains in parks, public or private buildings that receive water from the affected system.

- Do not use ice unless it has been made with boiled water. Freezing will not necessarily kill harmful bacteria.

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

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.
