Bacteriological samples taken on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 were found to be free of bacterial contamination and a satisfactory disinfectant level has been established throughout the distribution system. The water is therefore considered safe for human consumption and the Boil Water notice is hereby lifted.
The Department of Health confirms there is a “Boil Water” Notice for the approximately 15 customers located on Avilla Road and Wilhelm Drive. This order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of the partial loss in normal system pressure.
Under this notice, all affected customers are advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption, and water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for one (1) minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water used for making ice.
This Notice will be lifted by the Department of Health when 1 set(s) of bacteriological samples indicate that the water is free of bacterial contamination and an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the distribution system.
