Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable. Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.
Due to the Thomas Fire and power outages, the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water, and Ventura Water are advising ALL City of Ventura residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.
DO NOT DRINK TAP WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Ventura Water will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 48-72 hours.
Please share this information with your friends and neighbors in Ventura.
