"Distribution depressurization can compromise the safety of the water supply," reads the notice.

Water used for drinking or ice making, preparing food or drinks or for brushing teeth should be brought to a boil for a minute before cooling and using. Other household uses for water, including in laundry or washing dishes, can continue on as normal.

The advisory will stay in effect until water tests from the community's water supply turns up no risks to public health.
