Brighton issues BOIL WATER ADVISORY to all consumers

The City of Brighton has issued a boil water advisory notice to all Brighton residents effective immediately due to a violation of the maximum contaminant level for E. coli in the drinking water. E. coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes. Microbes in these wastes can cause short-term effects, such as diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems. The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice from your health care provider.
