DC Water's boil water advisory does not affect our area

Well, a silver lining. Yesterday, DC Water sent out an alert that everybody who experiences low water pressure should boil their water for drinking, cooking or giving to pets, especially west of Rock Creek Park. 

However, there's an update which includes a map, and it's all west of the park, so not our area.

Good news, though if you live west of the park, better check their site, which also includes a list of the addresses affected. If you do have to boil your water, here's what you do:
Customers should:
- Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute.
- Allow water to cool before using.
- Store cooled water in a clean container with a cover.

Customers should use cooled, boiled water or bottled water for:
- Drinking
- Brushing teeth
- Preparing and cooking food
- Making ice
- Giving water to pets
At least it's not ectoplasmic slime or a three-eyed fish, right?
