The New Berlin Municipal Authority May Be At Increased Risk
From Microbial Contamination.
We routinely monitor the
conditions in the distribution system.
On January 20, 2022, we experienced a loss of positive water pressure
due to water main break. A loss of positive water pressure is a signal of the
existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the
distribution system through back-flow by back‑pressure or back-siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance
that the water may contain disease-causing organisms.
What should I do?
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT
BOILING IT FIRST.
Bring all water to a rolling boil, let
it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using; or use bottled
water. You should use boiled or bottled
water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food
preparation until further notice.
Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms.
These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause
symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.
These symptoms, however, are
not caused only by organisms in drinking water, but also by other factors. If
you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek
People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some
elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. General guidelines on ways to
lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA’s Safe Drinking
Water Hotline at 1 (800) 426‑4791.
