A precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for the City of Hutto.
Residents on City of Hutto on City water service are advised not to drink, make ice or brush teeth with tap water unless it has been boiled, until further notice. Residents who have weakened immune system are advised not to wash their hands or shower or bathe with tap water.
All other residents are advised to take precautions for the below hygiene actions:
- Washing hands: Use soap and tap water, dry hands then apply hand sanitizer; the safest option is to wash with safe water.
- Shower or bath: Being careful not to swallow any water, one may take a shower safely. Using caution when bathing infants and young children so that no water is swallowed is considered fairly safe. A sponge bath reduces the chance of swallowing water. The time spent bathing should be minimized. Though the risk of illness is minimal, individuals who have recent surgical wounds, are immunosuppressed or have a chronic illness may want to consider using bottled or boiled water for cleansing until the advisory is lifted.
Additionally, residents are asked to refrain from using water unless necessary until water service is restored to normal level of operations.
