Public Drinking Water Systems in Georgia are responsible for protecting public health by providing safe drinking water.  Despite best efforts, public utilities and other water suppliers are sometimes unable to prevent interruptions in water service.

When an interruption occurs we inform our water system customers here on our website and by the following other methods throughout the community:  Radio, (What stations), Television?, What newspapers and online news sources?, Social media? + maybe we can make an Americanwtr_boil_water_ advisory Facebook page and advertise it on every bill you send to clients on your water systems.+  XXX – Lauren fill in please XXX

Public Advisory

Boil Water Notice

[Indicate the cause for the service interruption in the system here (e.g., The isolation of a large diameter water main for repair)] is causing water pressure in parts of the water system to drop to dangerously low levels.  When this occurs a potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system.

In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/pr low water pressures are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food.  The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil.  Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by their drinking water utility that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.
