[ARCHIVED] Boil Water Advisory

The precautionary boil water advisory for the affected area shown below is lifted.  Bacteriological samples from the water main have passed State regulated standards.

On May 26, 2020, a water main break occurred at East Centre Avenue and Oakside Drive. It became necessary to depressurize a large area of water main to complete the repair. Affected customers are advised to boil their tap water for a minimum of one minute prior to use for drinking, brushing teeth or cooking. The above list and attached map illustrate the boil water advisory area. 

This is a precautionary measure. All means of flushing and collecting bacteriological samples from the water main will be followed before the advisory is lifted. A news release will follow once the advisory is lifted.
