TEC advised the following: Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using it for drinking or cooking. In addition, the system may experience discolored tap water due to shifting sediments in the water main. Washing clothes with discolored water may tint or stain garments. Please make sure to run water from an outside spigot or bathtub faucet to assure that water has been flushed before operating appliances. If sediment is present in the water, let it settle before drinking.
