The City of Silver Lake is under a “boil water” advisory. The City reports that contamination may have occurred due to an electrical outage that disabled the well pump causing a loss in water pressure. Residents are urged to bring all water to a full boil and let it cool before using it or use bottled water at this time. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, and food preparation until further notice. The City of Silver Lake will inform the public when tests show that no E. coli bacteria are present. They anticipate the issue will be resolved by Thursday.
