The City of Piqua Municipal Water
System has issued a boil advisory for all City of Piqua
residents. This is a precautionary measure due to the water
treatment plant's finished water exceeding the allowable limit
for turbidity in the drinking water. The incident started on
October 30, 2013 at 6 AM and is ongoing at this time.
All residents are advised to start boiling all drinking water
taken from the public water system in accordance with the Ohio
EPA regulations. This includes water for drinking, making ice
cubes, washing food, brushing teeth, or any activity involving
consumption of water.
Water should be brought to a full, rolling boil for at least 5
minutes to ensure that it is safe for consumption. Boiled water
may be stored at room temperature or refrigerated in a closed
container until needed.
This order shall remain in effect until satisfactory testing of
the drinking water is complete. There will be another Press
Release that will advise all residents when the boiling of water
is no longer necessary.
Questions regarding this notice should be directed to:
