Boil water advisory remains in effect in Oxford
Until late Wednesday at the earliest OXFORD, N.S.
– Oxford’s boil water advisory remains in effect.
The town issued a news release late Monday saying it’s required by the provincial Environment Department to have water tests completed to ensure the absence of pathogens or bacteria before the all clear can be given.
The boil order was put into effect on Sunday because of a power outage at the town’s chlorinator in Little River.
Test results are expected by the end of the day Wednesday.
Residents are asked to boil any water for at least one minute that is to be used for drinking, ice cubes, washing food, brushing teeth or any activity requiring human or domestic animal consumption.
