What is a Boil Water Advisory (BWA) and why is it issued?

A BWA is issued to protect the community from waterborne emergency. The advisory is issued as a precautionary measure when there is concern that contamination may have occurred during water treatment or due to water main pipe repair. Due to a change in the way the state Department of Environmental Protection views a "waterborne emergency", many water line breaks and routine maintenance repairs now require the issuance of a BWA.

Touchless Kitchen Faucet
Have you noticed your kitchen faucet lately? Your faucet that was once new, bright, and modern may now be dull, outdated, and leaking due to hard water or high chlorine. 
 
It's time to brighten the look of your kitchen!

Water Leak

Three Ways To Avoid A Water Catastrophe

  • Disconnect or turn off outside faucets for the winter. Make sure all hoses and attachments are taken off any outside faucets. A common over site is a splitter allowing the user to operate two or more hoses from the same outlet. If possible, turn the outside faucets off from the inside and leave the faucet open. In my experience, even a frost free hydrant will freeze if not disconnected.
     
  • Turn your water off when leaving your home for an extended period. Leaks can develop while you are away, creating an unpleasant return home. Sometimes plumbing fittings or fixtures break without warning.
