BOIL YOUR TAP WATER
Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.
The Virginia Department of Health in conjunction with the Pulaski County Health Department, and Town of Pulaski Water System are advising residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution. This precaution is necessary because of a water main break that resulted in drained distribution system lines and storage tanks.
DO NOT DRINK TAP WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, beverage and food preparation, and making ice until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Boiling is the preferred method to assure that the tap water is safe to drink. Bring all tap water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Use caution boiling water; let water cool before attempting to move container to avoid spills, scalds and burns. Boil amounts of water that you can safely handle.
We will inform you when you no longer need to boil your water. To address this problem we are repairing the broken line, flushing and disinfecting the system, and collecting special bacteriological samples to ensure water quality. We anticipate resolving the problem by Friday July 15, 2022 and no later than Saturday July 16, 2022.
