Here is a link to the city of Dayton's boil advisory map.

If you’re in a boil advisory area, let your water run for three minutes, then heat it so that it boils at a rolling boil for at least a minute. Do that before consuming the water.

If you’re not in a boil advisory area, you don’t need to boil your water.

The county is also working on a searchable database so that residents can search their address and determine their boil advisory status that way.

The situation is affecting roughly 75,000 Dayton residents, city spokeswoman Toni Bankston said.

About 15,000 to 20,000 county water connections are affected, county spokeswoman Brianna Wooten said.


Anyone who is unsure if they are under the advisory or who has questions, should contact the county at 937-781-2688.
