Bat-Yam, Holon Neighborhoods Told to Boil Tapwater


Residents in an area extending from the Kiryat Ben-Gurion neighborhood of Holon to Balfour Street at the edge of western Bat-Yam, south of Tel Aviv, were asked, Monday afternoon to boil all water to be used for drinking, cooking, preparing drugs and brushing teeth for at least two minutes. Routine microbiological tests revealed unacceptable levels of bacteria in the water.

The Health Ministry and the water companies said said they would continue to test the quality of the water. People with questions are asked to call the Bat Yam and Holon municipal switchboards (106).
