As a precaution, the City of Winnfield Water Department is immediately issuing a boil advisory. This boil advisory is to remain in effect until otherwise noted. The boil water advisory is issued for the EVERYONE North of Tractor Supply (167 North).
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it. This includes water for fountain drinks, making ice, brushing teeth or using it for food preparation or rinsing off foods by the following means:
Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Once the water has been boiled, you may improve the taste of the water by shaking it in a closed container, pouring it from one clean container to another, or adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
Consumers should disinfect their water before consumption until otherwise notified.
