Update, May 4, 2022, 4:00 PM:
Both rounds of water sampling taken from Mount Vernon and Equity Water Systems have passed all AHS parameters, and the water has been deemed safe to drink.
The Boil Water Advisory for Mount Vernon and Equity Water System Areas has ended.
After the Boil Water Advisory ends:
- Turn on all taps and flush water lines for at least 5 minutes (10 minutes if you live in an apartment building).
- Read instructions from the manufacturer on how to flush, clean, and sanitize containers that protect and store drinking water (called cisterns), water filters, and ice and water dispensers.
- Drain and refill hot water tanks that are set below 45º C.
- Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle (see the instructions from the manufacturer.)
