At the present time, it is not certain whether any of the fuel reached the Spanish River.
As a precaution, the Sudbury and District Health Unit is advising those who take their drinking water from the Spanish River or from wells supplied by the river not use that water until further notice.
Health unit staff will continue to monitor the situation. The Sudbury and District Health Unit will advise residents when the drinking water advisory is lifted.
