A Boil Water Advisory is typically issued after a water main break repair, small or widespread loss of pressure in our water system, or a natural disaster. In some cases, our crews can repair a water main while maintaining adequate pressure to prevent possible contamination from entering the water distribution system. When we issue a Boil Water Advisory, we notify only the customers affected. For more information please read our FAQ or call the Public Works and Water Resources Department at (302) 366-7000.
