The Town of Dalhousie would like to advise the residents of Darlington Ward that a precautionary boil water advisory has been ordered by the Department of Health.
The advisory will be in effect starting July 8th at 8:00am. During a boil water advisory it is important that all water destined for drinking, preparing infant formulas and juices, making ice cubes, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking and dental hygiene be held at a rolling boil for 1 minute. Unless advised differently by the Department of Health, under most circumstances it is not necessary to boil water used for other household purposes. Adults, adolescents and older children may shower, bath or wash using tap water but should avoid swallowing the water. Toddlers and infants should be sponged bathed and caregivers need to ensure no water is drunk or swallowed. Dishes and laundry may be washed in tap water, either by hand or by machine, unless advised differently by a Department of Health representative.”
Areas affected are: Eel River Bar, Miller Blvd, Thermal subdivision, Baybreeze drive, Leblanc Subdivision, Tremblay Subdivision, Sunset Drive and Darlington Drive from 476 to highway 11 overpass.
You will be notified when the situation is back to normal and boil order advisory is lifted.
The Town of Dalhousie would like to apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause.
