Should you experience an outage of your water service, please review the boil advisory information below. Del-Co will issue an automated call to customers involved in an outage and who should boil their water. Having the most current contact number on file in important to our ability to reach you in the event of a boil water notice.
Please also see Planned Outages for additional advisories.
