[ARCHIVED] BOIL WATER NOTICE

The City of Alliance is hereby making public notice of the violation of drinking water microbiological standards. The violation consists of the detection of fecal or E. coli bacteria in its distribution system.

Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for 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. We will inform you when tests show no further contamination and you no longer need to boil your water. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPS Safe Drinking Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
