Boil advisory issued for town of New Market
originally posted on June 2, 2016
Officials said the advisory was issued after a drop in water pressure when crews working on a fiber optic project hit a water main. The system will be tested for several days to make sure bacteria did not enter the system.
Residents are advised to 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, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
The water may be used out of the tap for bathing and other similar purpose
