Boil Water Advisory

March 12, 2018 - To Residents of East Road from Dexter Line to Hill Street, Gentrey Lane, Hill Street east of East Road Port Stanley, Ontario.

The Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Joyce Lock, is advising people living in this area of a loss of pressure in the municipal system that might have compromised water safety. As a precaution, they are being asked to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to using it for domestic purposes e.g., drinking, making infant formula and juice, brushing teeth, washing raw foods and making ice.

The reason for the advisory is that the Medical Officer of Health has been advised that a water main break occurred on East Road on March 12th, 2018 that could have affected the water supply. The boiling water advisory is recommended as a precaution in case the loss of pressure led to contamination. All consumers located at East Road from Dexter Line to Hill Street, Gentrey Lane, Hill Street and east of East Road are being notified of this advisory.

A copy of "Guidelines for Using Water Safely During a Boil Water Advisory" is available on the Elgin St. Thomas Public Health website at: https://www.elginhealth.on.ca/your-environment/environmental-health/drinking-water/boil-water-advisory-faq

People without internet access can call the Health Unit at 519-631-9900 and request more information.

This advisory measure is in place until bacteriological tests prove the water is safe.

Please direct questions to our Health Protection Department at 519-631-9900.
