During many natural disasters governmental authorities may issue a "Boil Water" announcement. Usually, that means that something has gone badly wrong at the municipal water treatment plant, and city water may be contaminated from a backflow of water from the lake or river the city is using to supply its water for treatment. And although water coming from the tap may appear clear and pure, it is anything but.
