Customers in the affected areas should:

  • Fill a pot with water
  • Heat the water until bubbles come quickly from the bottom of the pot to the top.
  • Keep heating the water for one more minute.
  • Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
  • Pour water into a clean, sanitized container with a cover for storage.

Boiled water should be used for drinking, brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food and baby formula, making ice and giving to pets.

For current boil advisory status, residents can call 937-521-2150 and press option 2.

Customers in other areas of the Clark County Utilities water system are not affected and do not need to boil their water, the statement says.
