Boil water orders and notifications are issued in response to the presence of a public health hazard. These are required to protect public health when treated water is found to be unsafe for public consumption, or when there is adequate reason to believe that the water may become unsafe. Boil water orders and notices are often issued in response to an exceedance of microbiological standards. A boil water order and notice may also be issued to address conditions that create a potential for biological contamination, from simple waterline breaks to more complex matters such as interruption of treatment, uncontrolled back flow events, power outages, and floods.

Good alternate water sources include bottled water, water from another public water supply, water from a tanker provided by an emergency response agency, and water delivered by a NY State certified bulk water provider. Roadside springs are not a sure source of safe drinking water.

Organisms of concern in New York State include: protozoa like Giardia and Cryptosporidium; bacteria such as Shigella and E. coli; and viruses. These organisms can affect the gastrointestinal system, with or without fever, and result in: diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Most of these illnesses are not usually serious or life threatening except in the elderly, the very young or people who are immunocompromised. Skin contact can also lead to infection.
