West Terre Haute, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Officials with the West Terre Haute Water Works are calling on residents to boil water before use.
A water main is being repaired in town, due to that, the area of Sugar Creek Estates Trailer Park is now under a boil order until further notice.
The CDC’s guidance for how to properly boil water during these situations is as follows;
• Fill a pot with water.
• Heat the water until bubbles come from the bottom of the pot to the top.
• Once the water reaches a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minute.
• Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
• Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
Water Works officials state this is the only area currently affected.
