Boil order issued for city of Livermore


A boil order has been issued for the city of Livermore. Water used for cooking, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation should be boiled until further notice, or use bottled water.

Effective Thursday, April 19 at 2:59 p.m., until further notice, a boil order has been issued for the city of Livermore in Humboldt County.
Residents are advised to bring all water to a boil, let it boil vigorously for at least one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Residents should also follow these helpful tips when a boil water advisory is issued:
• Throw away any ice made during a Boil Water Advisory. Freezing does not kill bacteria.
• Adults and teens can use water for bathing, but should be careful not to swallow water.
• Wash clothes as you normally do.
• Only use your dishwasher if there is a high temperature cycle.
• After a Boil Water Advisory is lifted, flush house pipes, ice makers, hot water heaters, water softeners, and garden hoses, and change filters before using water for drinking and cooking.
