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.
