A boil-water advisory is in effect for all Benham water customers from Lynch Avenue to Cumberland Elementary School. This advisory is issued due to excessive turbidity, which is defined as find suspended solids in the drinking water which causes discoloration.
The potential exists for bacteriological contamination of the water supply; therefore, this boil-water advisory has been issued as a precautionary measure.
Until further notice, boil all water used for drinking and cooking by bringing the water to a rolling boil for three minutes before using.
