Due to an elevation in turbidity readings throughout the afternoon, we are advising that all consumers of the water distribution network boil their water for a minimum of one (1) minute rolling boil prior to consumption. Tap water may be used for cooking, cleaning, disinfection, dish washing and hand washing.
This is required due to the disinfection effectiveness being potentially compromised. The Boil Water notice will be removed when turbidity readings normalize and adequate disinfection is ensured. The increase in readings is due to the hight water levels were are experiencing with recent in climate weather.
Residents: Please ensure that adequate safe drinking water supplies are stored during this time.
