Boil water advisory lifted

The boil water advisory that was issued by the Department of Health is now lifted. It is no longer necessary to boil the water before consumption.

 The Village of Tide Head would like to apologize for any inconvenience the situation may have caused.

Boil water advisory

A boil water advisory has been ordered by the Department of Health on the Village of Tide Head. During a boil water advisory it is important that all water destined for drinking, preparing infant formulas and juices, making ice cubes, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking and dental hygiene be held at a rolling boil for 1 minute. Unless advised differently by the Department of Health, under most circumstances it is not necessary to boil water used for other household purposes. Adults, adolescents and older children may shower, bathe or wash using tap water but should avoid swallowing the water. Toddlers and infants should be sponged bathed and caregivers need to ensure no water is drunk or swallowed. Dishes and laundry may be washed in tap water, either by hand or by machine, unless advised differently by a Department of Health representative.”
