The notice will remain in effect until the problem is fixed and bacteriological surveys show the water in these areas is once again safe to drink without boiling it first, the county said.

The warning extends to water used in drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing one’s teeth or washing dishes. The water must be kept at a rolling boil for at least one minute before it can be used, and bottled water may be used as an alternative, the county said.
