A boil water notice (BWN), sometimes referred to as a boil water advisory, is a notice issued by your city water system advising you to boil your drinking water for safety purposes. BWNs are issued anytime there is a possibility that the water being delivered to you might be contaminated with cryptosporidium, Legionella, E. coli, or other disease-causing germs and pathogens.
UV disinfection systems are designed to destroy contaminants at the microbial level without the use of harmful or toxic chemicals. They provide an additional level of protection and security by eliminating microorganisms that are able to survive chlorine treatments, such as cryptosporidium and giardia. UV disinfection systems are able to destroy as much as 99.9 percent of bacteria and other microorganisms.
