Boil Water Advisory Issued for Millbrook Residents

Written by admin, August 22, 2014

August 22, 2014 – The Peterborough Public Health is issuing a boil water advisory for the residents of Millbrook who use the municipal water system.

Residents should bring water to a rolling boil for at least a minute before using it for things such as drinking, cooking or brushing teeth.

This precaution should be taken until further notice.

This advisory is being made following the loss of pressure in the water system due to a broken water main. Under such conditions, there is a risk of water being siphoned or back-flowed into the distribution system through inappropriate household connections such as hoses in laundry tubs.

Once Public Health is satisfied with the water sample results, the public will be notified.
