Nelsonville BOIL ORDER for East Columbus St from Rocky Boot Way to Jefferson St, until further notice

Nelso Boil Order

The City of Nelsonville Water Department Water has issued a boil order for East Columbus Street from Rocky Boot Way to Jefferson Street until further notice.

Boil orders are put into place as a result of broken water lines or local flooding. When this happens, the drinking water may have been contaminated which can cause many illnesses.

• To improve the flat taste of boiled water, keep cold in refrigerator.

• Be sure to use sanitized food grade containers for storing water.
• To disinfect water storage containers, pour a solution of one tablespoon of unscented chlorine bleach to a gallon of water into a container. Let the solution remain in the container for 10 minutes, then pour out the solution. Rinse with purified water.
• Boiled or disinfected water can be stored for six months.
• Dispose of ice cubes.
• When washing dishes, make sure to sterilize dishes with a final dip in water that has one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water. Disposable tableware is an option during a boil order.
