Alert for residents of the city of Adams! Residents are being urged to boil their water before drinking, after lightning damaged the city pump Wednesday night, according to the local news station.
The boil advisory is preventative, applies only to drinking water, and is in effect until the state clears the water. Your Culligan Man has a few helpful tips, if you’re within the advisory area:
1. Don’t panic – There are plenty of simple precautions.
2. Purge – Rid your kitchen of any ice, juice, stored water or uncooked food that may have been prepared with tap water during the contamination period.
3. Call your Culligan Man! Culligan has a wide variety of bottled water coolers that can be delivered right to your door. The best part is once the boil advisory is lifted, you’ll still have filtered Culligan water available in your home.
4. Boil or Buy – Use only boiled water or bottled water for any activities involving water consumption. This includes brushing your teeth, washing foods, making ice cubes or rinsing dishes.
To Boil Water: Bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute.
*Note* Even if you have a Culligan system in place, you should still follow all boil advisories. Our systems are an extra precaution against contaminants.
