Austin Boil-Water Order In Effect While Utility Pleads For Reduced Water Consumption

Austin Water advises customers to boil water for three minutes before consuming it and says that water-filtration systems alone will not remove harmful bacteria. The utility says there have been no positive tests for "bacterial infiltration" of the water system so far, but emphasizes that there is still a risk. 

With all the silt and debris, the water treatment facilities are only able to produce 105 million gallons of clean water a day. Current water usage in Austin is at about 120 million gallons a day, according to Austin Water. "To provide necessary water pressure for fire protection, plants must distribute water at treatment levels not typical of the utility’s high standards for consumption," the public utility said in a press release. 

Austin Water says it's OK to use water for showering, laundry and washing hands but advises boiling water for drinking, cooking and making ice. Dishes should be washed in hot, soapy water and rinsed with boiled water. Bottled or boiled water should be used for baby formula and given to pets.

A kind of fluid formed (like boils, smaller than mustard size) on fingertips (on palm). Is it an allergy ?

A kind of fluid being formed (like boils, smaller than the size of mustard) intially on fingertips/fingerends (on the palm side). I am suffering from this disease since more than a decade. None of the doctors have ever confirmed the name of disease.


Allergies are not contagious and therefore cannot be transmitted to another individual. If it is the same thing that your wife has now then it is some sort of communicable disease/infection. You need to go back to the doctor and request a culture to be
