Overview

During a planned or unplanned event, it is essential for a utility to communicate with the public about drinking water alerts or advisories. One method of communicating drinking water alert or advisory information is using the Drinking Water Advisory solution.

The map based view of drinking water advisories or alerts allows for customers to view areas with affected service. This map also includes additional information, such as precautions to take, when the drinking water advisory began, and the number of affected customers.
