Boil water advisory issued for Oakwood

KAWARTHA LAKES-Parts of the Village of Oakwood are under a boil water advisory.

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit has issued the advisory and
residents in the affected areas are strongly urged to take appropriate precautions by only drinking tap water if it has been boiled for at least one minute

The advisory specifically affects 5 to 65 Grant Drive, 8 to 25 Brenda Boulevard, and 2, 9, 17, 21 Albert Street.

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.
