Will the MDC reimburse the towns for the problems it incured? I doubt it. Copepods are a type of Plankton, if you boil the water all you are doing is cooking the Plankton. I was wondering if someone is emptying their fish tanks into the reservoir because copepods are used as a food for certain types fish. People who have Aquariums usually grow them as food for their fish..

What? Tomorrow??? I put a big pot of water on the stove last Wednesday night and it hasn't quite started to boil yet. Can you please give me a few more days?

Also, how long do I have to boil this strip of bacon before I know that all the swine flu in it is dead?

Thanks!

Some info why we have to boil that MDC fails to tell you.

Should I Drink the Water if these Organisms are Present?

Since these organisms are not known to harm public health, it's possible that the water can be consumed without a health risk. However, since the presence of copepods and rotifers is abnormal and indicative of a problem in the treatment system, it is prudent to boil the water before drinking it. This is just in case other organisms that are normally filtered out of the raw water, such as cryptosporidium and giardia, have made it past the filters and are also present in the finish water. These organisms are infectious and can harm human health. Because they are rarely in public supplies, they are not routinely tested for. Fortunately, boiling destroys cryptosporidium, giardia and any other microorganisms that might be of concern. This provides a precautionary line of defense against the possibility that such organisms have made their way into the finish water along with the detected copepods and rotifers.
