Drinking Water Advisories/Boil Water Advisories


The table below lists: 1) all open Drinking Water and Boil Water Advisories, and 2) all Drinking Water and Boil Water Advisories issued in the last year, including those that have been rescinded by the Drinking Water Bureau.

A Boil Water Advisory is issued when a water system violates the bacteria (Total Coliform) standard and the presence of E. Coli or fecal coliform is detected in the system. This requires immediate notice to all consumers informing them how to make their water safe for consumption. The Boil Water Advisory is lifted only when sampling indicates that the water system is back in compliance with the standards for Total Coliform Bacteria.

A Drinking Water Advisory is issued when a non-microbiological drinking water standard, such as for Nitrate, is violated.

The following fact sheets provide more information for consumers on Boil Water and Drinking Water Advisories:
