A Boil Water Advisory, sometimes called a boil water notice, boil water alert, or boil-water order, is a public health advisory or directive given by government offices or health authorities to communities when that community's drinking water is, or could be, contaminated by pathogens.
Under a Boil Water Advisory, it is recommended that water be boiled for several minutes in advance of consumption or use. Boiling for this period will kill off as much of the bacteria and viral contamination as possible.
