Taibe Residents Told to Boil Water


Residents of the city of Taibe in the Arab Triangle, east of Netanya, were told to boil all water for human consumption, Thursday afternoon, following a technical malfuntction at an authorized well.

The municipality connected a well that was not authorized by the Health Ministry to the city's water grid. As a result, water entering the system is suspected of being contaminated. The ministry demanded that the city disconnect from the unauthorized well. Residents will have to boil their water until testing show they no longer have to do so.
