How will I know if my water isn’t safe to drink?
Your water supplier must notify you by newspaper, mail, radio, TV, or by hand-delivery if your water doesn’t meet EPA of State Standards or if there is a waterborne disease emergency. The notice will describe any precautions you need to take, such as boiling your water. Follow the advice of your water supplier if you receive such a notice. The most common drinking water emergency is contamination by disease-causing germs. Boiling your water for one minute will kill these germs. You can also use common household bleach or iodine to disinfect your drinking water at home in an emergency, such as a flood.
