Original Report

Due to flooding in the Village of Interlaken, residents are asked to boil all water used for drinking or culinary purposes.

A large amount of rainfall on Monday caused flooding in the area of the well head, and as a precaution a boil water notice has been issued.

All water should be brought to a boil for one minute and cooled before using. Boiled or bottle water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food until further notice.

Harmful microbes in bacteria could result in diarrhea, cramps, nauseas, headaches, and other symptoms. They could pose health risks for infants, elderly and those with compromised immune systems.

Residents will be notified when tests confirm there is no harmful bacteria in the system and water can be used again.
