Boil advisory issued in Huntingburg

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Due to a water main break, a boil advisory has been issued for Fifth Street between Washington and Van Buren streets in Huntingburg. Customers will be notified once the boil advisory has been lifted.

During a boil advisory, the following precautions should be taken: boil water vigorously for 3 minutes prior to use; do not use ice from household ice maker; disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least 1 minute in clean tap water that contains 1 teaspoonful of unscented household bleach per gallon of water; and let water cool before drinking.

Discolored water during the course of the boil advisory is possible. Customers are advised to use caution when doing laundry during this time, although water used for hand washing or bathing does not generally require boiling. It is recommended to flush cold water lines before beginning laundry.
