Our water smells really bad this am. Has anyone heard anything about a boil order, or anything like that? I can't find anything.

Is it just your water, how about your neighbors?

I was wondering about the boil order, too. I'm in Colonial Place and we had a mess. Raw sewage backed up into countless basements around here. Our normally "dry as a bone" basement was flooded - with ground water thankfully. I have a friend who ended up with three feet of raw sewage in her full basement.

Part of the problem is, the sewer pipes are so old that they leak and the storm water gets into the sanitary sewer and the filthy water gets into the storm water. I don't know about the fresh water pipes. Are they permeable? I know that *I* stayed with bottled water for a few days. Didn't want to take the risk of getting cholera.

SO yeah, I am surprised that there was no boil order.
