Boil water advisory

Please be advised that a boil water advisory has been issued for the following area:

  • S. Claiborne Ave from Calhoun St. to Robert St.
  • Robert St. from S. Claiborne Ave. to River 
  • Mississippi River from Robert St. to Exposition Blvd
  • Exposition Blvd. from River to St. Charles Ave.

People on campus are advised to use bottled or boiled tap water to drink, cook, clean food, or brush teeth until further notice. Avoid drinking from campus water fountains until the advisory has been lifted. Residents with compromised immune systems should also use safe water to wash hands, shower or bathe. 

Fresh water will be available at dining services and at the residence hall front desks for resident students. Classes will continue as planned and everyone is urged to watch their email about any event cancellations.

Boil water for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute boil time begins after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (If there is a flat taste, it can be eliminated by shaking the water in a bottle or pouring it from one container to another.)

We will notify you when the boil water advisory has been lifted.
