The City of Toledo issued an urgent notice to residents of Toledo and Lucas County who receive water from the city of Toledo.
Customers are being asked to avoid drinking or boiling water.
Chemists testing water at Toledo’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant had two sample readings for microcystin.
The health department says it is critical that residents know the following:
1. It is safe for healthy adults to bathe, wash their hands, and shower. While bathing, children should be under the supervision of an adult to prevent accidental drinking of the water.
2. Do not drink tap water until the all clear is given, this also includes pets.
3. Do not use tap water to cook until the all clear is given.
4. Do not boil tap water.
5. It is ok to use and flush your toilet.
Oregon is a ten minute drive away, with their own water supply. And can you guess what the super market shelves for water look like right now?
