What is a "no use" advisory?

A "no use" advisory would be issued notifying residents that they should not use the water for drinking, cooking, and all personal hygiene usage even after boiling. This type of notice remains in effect until the City's Water Department notifies residents that the water is acceptable for consumption and other uses.
