Have you ever been advised to boil your tap water due to possible contamination?

Not yet. You know something you're not telling?

No, just that we have a 48 hour boil order here because the system was unpressurized for most of the day yesterday while the town replaced some equipment. Apparently that is normal in that situation, but it's a first for me.

When I was a kid. We lived up on some dirt roads in a "private community" that got all its water from a well. There was a bad storm and for a few weeks we couldn't use the water - it was brown and disgusting.

Its a pretty normal thing around here. Its usually not too bad, but sometimes its needed.

Not in any place that I've lived, as far as I can remember. But I was visiting friends near Washington DC when there was a boil-water advisory. I remember restaurants selling bottled water for pretty outrageous amounts.

By a German travel company when flying to Tunisia in 1977. Been a while ;) Actually, they didn't advise us to boil the tap water but buy bottled water and/or use purification tablets.
