Boil Water Advisory – Whale Cove

The Department of Health is issuing a boil water advisory for the residents of Whale Cove.

This is a precautionary measure due to the transition from the legacy water treatment plant to the temporary plant and the potential for bacteria to be present in the water.

During a boil water advisory, all water for consumption must be brought to a rolling boil for a minimum of one full minute.

It is essential that all water be boiled for the following uses:

  • drinking;
  • preparing infant formulas;
  • preparing juices and ice cubes;
  • washing fruits and vegetables;
  • cooking; or
  • brushing of teeth.

Water can be boiled either in a pot or kettle on a stove or an electric kettle without an automatic shut-off. The boil water advisory is only for the uses listed above.
