Boil Order Since December!

We live in a condo unit that has had a boil order since Mid-December 2007. It is now March 7th and they are still "testing the drinking water" . There are only 4 full time residents in this complex since it is mainly a summer vacation spot in Missouri. I feel they aren't doing anything because there are not enough residents to make a difference yet. I'm sure that the management will be getting on it now that spring is around the corner but feel as though we have been treated like step-children they could'nt care less about. Should anything be said to Public Health, or just leave this matter alone since we know we'll be up for assessments with this situation anyway? Comments???

The health department should definitely be made aware of this. Also, do you or the others own the condo's, or do you rent. If you own, you should get in front of the homeowners association. You're paying dues. You should get answers. If you rent, talk to your landlord. Have him/her put pressure on them, or ask for a rent reduction. It's an inconvenience at least. It's costing you money in electric or gas to boil water, or in bottled water.

Most places the landlord is required to supply potable water. If the water from the taps is not potable then they should be supplying you bottled water at no charge.

If the public health department is not involved, who issued the boil order and for what reason?

The health department should be directly involved with this. They are who places a boil order and they are the only entity that should be able to lift the order.
