On Thursday, Nov. 3, a watermain break in Carleton Place’s Westview Heights subdivision has lowered the water pressure to residents in the general area.

As a precaution a boil water advisory was issued just after 1:30 p.m. by the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.

Until further notice, residents in the affected area (see accompanying map) should not drink the water unless it is heated to a rolling boil for at least one minute.

Staff with the public works department is working to isolate and repair the watermain break. Ocean Wave Fire Company Captain Rick Jackson, Deputy Fire Chief Dave Joy and Fire Prevention Officer Matt Anderson have been spotted in the area going door to door to advise of the boil water conditions.

As information becomes available it will be posted to the town’s website as well as Facebook and Twitter pages.

According to the Carambeck Community Centre Facebook page, “For those who are experiencing water issues today, feel free to pop into Carambeck and fill up your water bottles and use our restrooms! Our door is open!”
