The Health Unit issued the boil water advisory because of a lack of disinfection in the municipal water system. Chlorine has been restored and water samples taken to ensure the safety of the water supply.
“The bacteriological quality of the water supply has been tested with no adverse results being reported,” said Burgess Hawkins, a manager in the Health Unit’s Environmental Health Division.
What to do after boil water advisory is lifted:
-Run cold water faucets for one minute before using the water.
-Run drinking fountains for one minute before using the water.
-Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle.
-Drain and refill hot water heaters set below 45 C (a normal setting is 60 C).
