“The pressure loss may also cause additional disruptions in water quality including discolored water and/or potentially a temporary increase in lead levels in the drinking water,” she said.
“We are investigating and taking the necessary steps to correct the problem as soon as possible including water quality sampling,” said Quinlivan.
The city advisory states: “DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT FLUSHING AND BOILING IT FIRST. Flush all taps used for drinking and cooking for at least 3 minutes. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for at least one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.”
City officials said “symptoms of the waterborne disease include nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.”
“If you experience one or more of these symptoms and they persist, contact your doctor. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly people may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.”
