Tips for Normal Water Usage

As residents return to their normal water usage, we want to remind residents to take the steps below to ensure safe water consumption:
• Flush building water lines by allowing both the hot and cold water to run for several minutes at each fixture. Hot water should be run longer to purge the hot water heater and cycle in new fresh water
• Clean faucet screens by removing them from the fixture and boiling them in water
• Dispose of ice cubes made from tap water
• Replace water filters on sinks and refrigerators
• Purge water using appliances such as refrigerator water dispensers, coffee machines, icemakers (continue replacing ice for 24 hours as water remains in the line as the ice forms), etc.
• Run an empty sanitize or bleach cycle on dishwashers
