Water Advisory 6.30.05

From Crain's NY Business, a water advisory for NYC for the next 24 hours:

Water advisory issued for city

New York City’s health department issued a water advisory, citing potential problems with the city’s water processing following recent heavy rainstorms.

The health department recommended that boiled water be used for the next 24 hours by infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those residents with conditions that compromise their immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS.

The department said it found higher-than-normal levels of “particles” in the city’s drinking water that could “interfere with the water chlorination process.” The levels were observed at the Hillview reservoir, one of three reservoirs that provide drinking water for the city.
