MILFORD — The town of Milford has issued a boil order, to commence Wednesday, Aug. 4.
Superintendent Steven Marquart said the order will remain in effect while crews are performing required maintenance on a valve along SR 15. No end date has been announced.
Residents and businesses are urged to use bottled or boiled water for drinking and food preparation. Non-bottled water should be brought to a full rolling bowl for one minute and cooled before using.
Unboiled water is still safe for bathing or showering, but be careful not to swallow any of the water, and use caution when bathing babies and young children. Sponge baths for children will help reduce the danger of them swallowing any water.
Do not use tap water for brushing teeth.
The Milford Food Bank, 111 S. James St., has a supply of one-gallon plastic jugs of drinking and spring water placed outside the building, free for the taking.
