BOIL WATER ORDER: Port Hastings Water System

Please note: As of April 11, this boil order is no longer in effect.

April 8, 2022

Please be informed that users of the Port Hastings Water System are currently under a boil water advisory as a public health preventative action. This is due to a major water main break causing a massive loss in water from the water storage tower and higher than normal turbidity. Strict water conservation orders are also in place until the level of water in the storage tower has been restored.

Residents and users are advised to follow preventive measures using water to ensure its safety prior to consumption or use:

  • Bring tap water to a rolling boil and maintain for a minimum of 1-2 minutes
  • Cool water before using for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and preparing beverages and food.

To conserve water, please:

  • Do not take baths and take short showers;
  • Do not wash vehicles;
  • Use the dishwasher or clothes washer only with a full load.

Please share widely with neighbours, friends, visitors, and members of vulnerable populations such as seniors who may be living alone.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
