Crisfield Residents Should Boil Water

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - A local health department is warning its resident to boil water. The Somerset County Health Department is warning Crisfield residents to either use bottled or boiled water.

They say that water could be contaminated because of the flooding from Sandy. This is a precautionary measure to keep residents safe and healthy. The county is testing the waters, but it could take several days.

They offer these tips:

  • Bringing water to a rolling boil for at least one minute is sufficient to ensure the water is safe to use for consumption.
  • After boiling, remember to let the water cool before use.
  • Ice which has been made since the flooding began should not be consumed or used for drinking.
