Boil Water Order

The City of Danville Water Department will issue Boil Water Order for various reasons. If a Boil Water Order has been issued, the city will notify the affected residents using door hangers, notifications via social media, and also on this website. When a Boil Water Order has been issued, the affected area will be noted on the top of this page, and at the top of all pages of this site, including the homepage.

During a Boil Water Order that affects your area, it is important to know that contamination has been confirmed and we urge all affected residents: Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one to two (1-2) minutes, let it cool before using or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for: drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation, until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
