Is the water safe for washing dishes, laundry, and bathing?


The water is safe for washing dishes, but you should use hot, soapy water (you may add one tablespoon of bleach per gallon as a precaution) and rinse dishes in boiled water.


There are no restrictions on doing laundry. The water is also safe for bathing during an advisory or notice; if the water is contaminated by a chemical that will cause harm on contact, The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility will issue a Do Not Use Notice, meaning the water should not be used for bathing.
