From the boil advisory FAQ
How will I be notified?
Current boil advisories will be posted in the announcement section of our web page. In some cases, our staff members go door-to-door with boil advisory notices to inform each customer that their residence is under a boil advisory. This notice will tell you the approximate date and time that the advisory will be lifted. Please call, ###-###-#### any time to receive the latest information and to verify when a boil advisory cancellation has been issued for your area.
If the affected area is too large to notify with door to door notices, a series of press releases are immediately prepared and faxed to local newspapers, radio stations, television stations, cable networks, and City offices. All schools within the affected area are also notified by telephone. Additionally, phone calls are made to all customers in the area who have been designated "critical water users." Personal telephone notification includes nursing homes and customers with identified health problems.
Yep, no kids or contact with any school, no land line phone (they will not call cell phones), no newspaper, don't listen to the radio, don't have television, and I don't feel like calling city hall every time I want to fill up a glass of water. So awesome water purifier.
