E-coli in drinking water

Abis pulang makan kemaren, pas lg browsing TV Channel, I suddenly stopped at the re-runs of the day's news..
Headlinenya: (in English) Bactery found in tap-water distributor
*syiit.. dimana nih?*
oh Hoofddorp
*wait, Hoofddorp bukannya deket sini?*
*listening to the news*
(in English)".. the pump station distributes water to the areas of ...[*ada amsterdam ga ya*]... and some parts of Amstelveen [*NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!*]"
:'(
this is NOT happening!
gmn nasib para kakek-nenek serta student2 yg tinggal di Amstelveen?

(men on TV, in English) "It is recommended for people to cook their water for min. 2 minutes before they use it"
(interviewer, in English) "How about with the water we used when brushing our teeth?"
(men on TV, in English) "Well, if you cook it first, then it will be okay"
T____T

HOOFDDORP - The e-coli bacteria was found at a water pumping station in Hoofddorp on Tuesday. The pumping station is operated by water company PWN.

The company has therefore warned residents of Haarlem, Haarlemmermeer and neighbouring municipalities to boil tap water for two minutes before drinking it, PWN reports on its website.

The e-coli bacteria can cause stomach ache and diarrhoea. PWN is investigating how the harmful bacteria could have ended up in the pumping station. Residents in the region can safely shower and wash, the company says.

A spokesperson for PWN says that the contamination affects 170,000 households in the Kennemerland area. Last week the e-coli bacteria also turned up in a residential neighbourhood in Hoofddorp, but that contamination has since been taken care of.

*sigh*

Update:other sources -> Metro, which led me to this website (crisis.nl), quoting fr this website:
Dit advies geldt voor inwoners van de gemeenten Aalsmeer, Bennebroek, Bloemendaal, Haarlem, Haarlemmermeer, Haarlemmerliede, Spaarnwoude, Uithoorn, Zandvoort en het landelijk gebied rondom Amstelveen (niet de stad Amstelveen).

okay, so.. i guess uilenstede is not included.. no? (Gondel piye Gondel?)
news updates can also be read here (Waterpump's website) - gile stasiun pompa air aja websitenya keren gitu..
and from Gemeente Amstelveen's website:
Het grootste deel van Amstelveen krijgt water via Waternet. Daarin is geen e-coli bacterie aangetroffen...De bewoners ontvangen binnen enkele uren een brief van de gemeente.
Jadi klo ga nerima surat apa2.. presumably i'm safe.. well they hv this number for more information: 0800-1351 .. tapi.. gratis ga ya? :p

Iya euy, nih pirus sadis juga. Saya kena, ketularan. Bahasa betawinya mah, ketepa.. geto.

Waktu kena, sakitnya minta ampun. Naujubilah mijalik deh. Trus mabur ke gezondheid centruum floriander. Dokter kaget banget, pas mencet perut saya, Sebab sakit sekali dan saya langsung muntah.
Beliau langsung meminta Spaarne Ziekenhuis Hoofddorp untuk ngambil saya.

Parahnya, ternyata Rumah Sakit Spaarne Ziekenhuis penuh pisan! Edun! Korban yang berjatuhan semakin banyak.

Akhirnya ambulan dari Haarlem datang. Saya dengan pasrahnya terkapar di ambulan, dibawa ke kemapung sebelah.

Ya ampuun, tiga hari masuk rumah sakit gara-gara keracunan aer keran. Malu-maluin aja.

Keluarga di Cilincing, wanti-wanti... Next time, kalo minum, aernya dimasak dulu. Hahaha.
