Deerfield Has Issued a Boil Order for Drinking Water (that Del Mar Woods does NOT use)

Posted by Pavel

CORRECTION: thanks Dianna Williams for the correction and VERY important information,  Del Mar Woods uses Highland Park water distributed by Bannockburn, so all of us should be safe here at our Del Mar Woods ;-)

otherwise, read on….

As you might have already noticed from your local Deerfield Starbucks coffe shoshot being closed – Deerfield has issued a boil order for drinking water for the next 48 hours.

All Deerfield water used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation must be boiled before use until further notice, according to a news release issued today by the Village.

Fecal coliform is a bacteria that indicates the water was contaminated with human or animal waste, which can cause illness, the release said.

This bacteria can make you sick and is of particular concern for people with weakened immune systems, according to village officials.

“Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using,” the Village said in the release. “Or, use bottled water. Boiling water kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.”
