Drinking Water Advisories

Drinking water advisories are public announcements issued by Southwestern Public Health when recent water tests or events indicate an adverse water situation. Advisories provide users with information on how they may protect themselves from consuming potentially contaminated drinking water. Advisories remain in effect until laboratory tests show that the water is safe for consumption. 

Reports of all new and existing drinking water advisories will be posted for the duration of the advisory.
