Please be advised that the Cook’s Lake Drinking Water System (Timcourt Drive, Robin Court, Allport Road, and Blue Jay Court) located in Farlain Lake will be under a precautionary “Boil Water Advisory” immediately due to an emergency breakdown. The Township is working to have this repaired as quickly as possible. Once the repair is finished residents will need to boil their water until a sample has been taken and the results collected. If residents are experiencing discolored water it is recommended to flush the taps (preferably outside or a laundry sink) for 15 minutes. This should clear up any discoloration.
A boil water advisory means the water should not be used for drinking, making infant formula and juices, cooking, making ice, washing fruit or vegetables, or brushing teeth. For these purposes, boiled water should be used. Before using water subject to a boil water advisory, the water should be brought to a rapid rolling boil for a minimum of one minute before using.
The Township will hand deliver notices to affected residents regarding the lifting of this advisory. The Township apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks you in advance for your cooperation and understanding regarding this matter. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the water department at the number listed below or visit www.tiny.ca/drinkingwater.
