A Boil Water Advisory is a public statement issued by a Public Water System advising consumers to boil tap water before consuming it.
Customers should assume the water is unsafe to drink and take the appropriate precautions.
What To Do When a Boil Water Advisory is Issued for Your Area:
Boil Water Advisories are issued when:
- An event has occurred allowing the possibility for the water distribution system to become contaminated.
- A public water system’s water quality sample results indicate exceedance of bacteria or turbidity standard.
- Evidence of a disease outbreak is reported to the NMED Drinking Water Bureau.
Boil Water Advisories are lifted when:
- The Public Water System’s sampling results once again meet the water quality standard.
Precautionary Boil Water Advisories recommended to a Public Water System when:
- A presumption can be made that drinking water may be contaminated by waterborne pathogens, such as from treatment failure or loss of distribution pressure.
