BoilWaterWatch.org is an organization dedicated to all things related to Boil Water Advisories, Orders, and Notices.
The simple fact that Boil Water Advisories in the United States are not tracked was astounding to us. There are an unknown number of Boil Water Advisories affecting millions of people every year.
There are at least several new Boil Water Advisories issued every day.
Many of these are false alarms, many are not. In either case, there are every day people whose lives are disrupted by these announcements. Many do not know how to respond, how to get up-to-date information, or what the Boil Water Advisory means to them. Many people are under prolonged Boil Water Advisory and can feel forgotten by the water authorities and local governments that are supposed to be protecting them.
BoilWaterWatch.org is democratizing water data and information around Boil Water Advisories, making real-time information and crucial resources accessible to all members of the water community.
