The city of Reno has issued a boil notice for up to 48 hours after “a treatment issue from one of our water suppliers.”
From the city of Reno in regard to the boil notice:
TCEQ has required us to issue this public notice and to tell all our customers that they should boil their water prior to consumption.
To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, any water that you use for drinking, cooking or ice making should be boiled prior to consumption. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. (Be sure to let it cool before drinking.) In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, we will notify you.
This notice is due to a treatment issue from one of our water suppliers. The city of Reno will collect water for samples today. As soon as we get the results to confirm the water is safe for consumption, we will rescind this notice within 24-48 hours.
