The water boil advisories for City of Dayton and Montgomery County water customers are canceled. Water customers do not need to boil water prior to consumption.
All water samples collected by the City of Dayton and Montgomery County were absent of bacteria.
Water customers are advised of the following before using tap water:
* If water has not been used for several hours, run the tap until there is a noticeable temperature drop.
* Then, run water for 30 seconds to 3 minutes before using it for drinking and cooking. This helps flush water that may have contained lead that may have leached from plumbing.
* Clean your faucet aerator. Flushing water lines includes interior and exterior faucets, showers, water and ice dispensers.
