December 2019 Community Updates
12/05/19 - If you remain under the advisory, we would like to remind you about one way to protect your household from lead: Periodically cleaning your faucet aerators.
Aerators are small attachments at the tips of faucets that regulate the flow of water. Over time, tiny particles of lead can break off and get trapped in aerator baskets, eventually contaminating the water.
12/10/19 - If you remain under the advisory, to accommodate work schedules and in response to customer feedback, we are adding Saturday hours at the distribution center, located at 24650 S. Western Ave in University Park, on an ongoing basis.
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
12/19/19 - If you are under the advisory, we would like to remind you that, according to the EPA and the CDC, you can consume and cook with your tap water if you first run your cold tap for two to three minutes, and then filter cold tap water through filters that are certified by the NSF to remove lead.
Be sure to follow all manufacturers’ instructions to ensure proper filter use.
