BOIL WATER ADVISORY
Customers of the Black Mountain Irrigation District are advised a Boil Water Advisory is in effect as of 6:00 p.m. Thursday September 4th.
Under a Boil Advisory water should be brought to a rolling boil for a minimum of two minutes, then be allowed to cool, prior to drinking, making juice or food preparation. Bottled water is a good option for those who prefer not to boil their water.
The Irrigation District has had to remove its chlorine cylinders from the BMID water treatment works due to the forest fire threat. Without chlorination water entering the service grid will not be adequately disinfected.
This Boil Water Advisory does not apply to customers of Rutland Water Works.
