Don't drink the water • The Health Department is warning people not to drink secondary water, which many property owners buy to irrigate their lawns, gardens and farms. That water is untreated and can be a source of bacteria and disease. Health officials also are encouraging adults to keep children from playing in sprinklers and wading pools or drinking from hoses if the source comes from secondary water.
