• This page contains an up-to-date list of Active and Lifted precautionary boil advisories. For customers in a small affected area (less than 40 affected customers), EWSU places a door hanger notice on customer doors notifying them of the Precautionary Boil Advisory. For larger areas, the Utility will not place individual door hanger notices on each customer’s door, but will instead notify the local media outlets, consisting of television, radio and newspaper.

While the potential for contamination of the drinking water is unlikely, the Evansville Water Utility is advising customers in the affected area to bring all cooking and drinking water to a complete boil for five (5) minutes before using. Please continue to boil all cooking and drinking water until we notify you that it is no longer necessary.

The Evansville Water Utility is implementing this precautionary boil advisory based upon information within the Water Supply Industry regarding additional precautionary steps that may safeguard the health of public water supply system customers. The conditions regarding this issue and the magnitude of the affected area warrant these additional precautionary measures. We will notify you when the precautionary boil advisory will be lifted.

Further information regarding this issue may be obtained by calling the Water Department / Allens Lane at (812) 421-2130. You can also visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
