How to properly boil your water:

During a boil water notice, folks should boil their water for drinking, cooking and making ice to kill all the harmful bacteria that could be present.

In order to do so, water should be brought to a "vigorous" rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

Instead of boiling water, you can also buy bottled water from a store to use in the meantime.
