DPH announces boil water advisories for 82 water systems

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that 82 small public drinking water systems in the state are now under a boil water advisory as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

"Although Hurricane Sandy ravaged parts of the state, we are very fortunate that the majority of Connecticut's public drinking water systems were not affected," said DPH Commissioner Dr. Jewel Mullen. "Our state's public drinking water supplies are well-protected from sources of contamination with measures that include laws prohibiting sewage treatment plants from being located upstream of a drinking water supply reservoir. We will continue to monitor Connecticut's drinking water and work with those systems under a boil water advisory to help get them back online."

Officials with the DPH said public drinking water systems that are experiencing power outages and don't have a backup power source are issuing the boil water advisories as a precautionary measure.

DPH officials said they were monitoring those systems and are working to contact other small public drinking water systems to determine their status and offer assistance as needed.

Affected public water systems will notify customers if a boil water advisory is announced.

  • Add 8 drops of liquid chlorine bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops per gallon for cloudy water. Do NOT use bleach that has perfumes or ingredients other than sodium hypochlorite as it may be toxic; 
  • Add water purification tablets according to directions on the package.

Mix completely and let water stand 30 minutes before using.
