Boil Water Advisories

A Boil Water Advisory (BWA) is a recommendation made to residents to only drink tap water if it has been boiled for at least one minute.

Generally, the Health Unit issues a BWA when there is known contamination of a water supply OR when there is a risk of contamination to the water supply. The BWA helps to protect the health of the community that the water system serves.

Residents will be notified by the Health Unit when the BWA is lifted and the water is safe to drink without boiling.
