Hartford – The Department of Public Health updated the list of public water systems under boil water advisory. Currently, 9 small public drinking water systems in the state are under a boil water advisory.

 

State health officials said it is important that residential customers served by systems that have issued a boil water advisory follow the guidance of their public water system. DPH is monitoring these systems and working to contact small public drinking water systems to determine their status and offer assistance as needed.

 

Only the customers of the specific public water systems listed are being advised to boil their water. The advisory does NOT apply to the entire town, just the systems listed below:

 

  • Sharon Heights Water Association, Bloomfield
  • 168 Boston Turnpike, Bolton
  • Chippanydale Association, Bristol
  • Hickory Hills, Brookfield
  • School Hill Association, Inc., East Windsor
  • Markowski Farms, East Windsor
  • Interlaken Water Company, New Fairfield
  • Woodland Summit Community Water Assn, Tolland
  • North Willington Village Condo Assoc., Willington

The updated list of public water systems under a boil water advisory is also available online at www.ct.gov/dph/ (click on “October Snow Storm: Important Health Information.”)
