Drinking water advisory issued for Mindemoya

The Sudbury & District Health Unit has issued a drinking water advisory for residents of Mindemoya, who draw their water from the municipal water system.

The advisory will likely remain in effect until later this week, the health unit announced July 22.

The drinking water advisory was issued due to a temporary loss of pressure in the municipal water system. Once pressure has been restored, water samples must be taken to ensure the safety of the water supply.

A drinking water advisory means that people who take their water from the municipal system should not use it for drinking, making juice, infant formula, or ice; cooking; washing uncooked fruits and vegetables; or brushing teeth.

Boiling the water may not make it safe for drinking. For these purposes, water from an alternate source, such as bottled water, should be used. The water may be used for laundry and bathing (excluding small children).

Arrangements have been made for residents to fill water containers at the Water Treatment Plant. Further information can be obtained from the municipality.

Residents should not use the water for human consumption until advised otherwise by the health unit.
