  • What is a Boil Water Notice?

    You may receive a "hang tag" or other form of written notice on your front door, or hear a news report on the radio, television, or through social media that a precautionary boil water notice has been issued for your neighborhood. Specific details about the event will be listed on the notice left at your door.  A contact number is also provided for additional information if needed.

  • What is a Precautionary Notice?

    The Polk County Health Department requires a precautionary notice after pressure in the lines drops below a certain level. This is usually caused by a water main break, system maintenance, or problems at the water plant such as a loss of disinfection. By comparison, a mandatory notice is rare and far more serious, and its provisions should be strictly followed.

  • Water Treatment

    A precautionary notice doesn’t necessarily mean something is wrong with the water. It is simply that it’s possible that contaminants may have entered the system. Thus, customers are advised as a precautionary measure to boil tap water for cooking and drinking.

  • Household Treatment Tips

    Boil water for one minute and cool before use. Follow these tips:

    • Pour water back and forth between two containers a few times to avoid a flat taste from boiling.
    • Discard any ice from automatic ice-makers.
    • Avoid contact with cuts or other wounds when bathing. Note that it is OK to use non-boiled water for bathing.
    • Allow the water to run until it is clear before washing clothes.
  • Notice Delivery

    Precautionary boil water notices are usually issued for 48 hours, until tests show the system is definitely clear of contaminants. If you received a notice on your door that an advisory has been issued, you also will receive a hand-delivered notice when the alert has been lifted. If you heard the news through the media, the lift notice will be issued the same way.
