DCRWC issues Boil Water Advisory

first_imgGreensburg, IN—Decatur County Rural Water Corporation has issued BOIL WATER ADVISORY on Southwest 60 for anything south of County Road 800 South also County Road 100 West to 350 West. Completly boil water for 5 minutes before using until further notice.A Boil Water Advisory (BWA) is a public statement advising customers to boil tap water before consuming it. An advisory is different from a Boil Water Notice, which is issued when contamination is confirmed in the water system. During a notice, all customers must boil their water before consuming it or use bottled water.Things you can do during a boil water advisory include: You should boil tap water vigorously for at least five full minutes at a complete boil prior to using it for drinking or cooking (the 5 minutes starts when the water begins to bubble). This includes water used for brushing teeth, making ice, washing raw foods, preparation of drinks, and water for pets. Wait for the water to cool before using it, or store it in the refrigerator in a clean container. Boiling removes harmful bacteria in the water that may cause illness. You should throw away ice made during the time the advisory or notice was issued, as freezing does not kill bacteria.After an advisory or notice has been lifted (if contamination of the water system did occur), you should flush household pipes, ice makers, water fountains, etc. prior to using for drinking or cooking. Flushing simply means letting the water run to ensure that no contaminated water remains in your pipes. Follow these guidelines for flushing:Run all cold water faucets in your home for one minuteTo flush automatic ice makers, make three batches of ice and discardRun water softeners through a regeneration cycleRun drinking water fountains for one minuteRun water coolers with direct water connections for five minutes.last_img read more

Rijiju expects best-ever haul in Tokyo, sets sight on 2028 Olympics

first_img Press Trust Of India COMMENT “With the time which is in our hand, we must ensure that India is no more a country which is not taken seriously in the Olympics. I will definitely not be satisfied as a sports minister of the country if we don’t win medals,” he said. The minister said nest year’s Tokyo Olympics is the immediate target but infrastructure needs to be put in place for future events for athletes to perform well. “Tokyo is an immediate target with the existing talent. We cannot create champions overnight. It’s not possible to create world champions in a year or two. We have to ensure that the entire infrastructure is in place,” Rijiju said.”Having said that, we have certain existing talents at our disposal and we have to make the best of it. I hope Tokyo 2020 will be a good platform for India to have a best-ever Olympic performance but we have limitations. However, there is nothing stopping us from 2024 Paris and especially the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics which is more than 8 years away” he added.READ: Lost in translation: swimmer Sun Yang’s doping case hits interpretation snagOn performing well at international eventsRijiju also emphasised on the need to do well at international sporting events.”As a young nation, we can’t afford to lag behind in the international level of competition — be it the Olympics, Asian Games or any of the world championships.”We are a young nation that’s why we have to set an ambitious target.
