This procedure addresses actions to be taken after notification by the Ohio-American Water Company that harmful contaminants have been identified in the water supply. Once the Ohio-American Water Company has notified campus security, you will be notified to take the following steps:

  1. Do not consume campus water.
  2. If bacterial contaminants are present, all water used for drinking, cooking, or washing of eating utensils should be boiled at a rolling boil for at least five (5) minutes or as instructed by the Health Department.
  3. Ice and any beverages prepared with contaminated water should be discarded.
  4. Continue the no use and/or boil order until the city or campus security notifies you that the city has rescinded the warning or alert.
