What happened?

As a result of a water main break in the Champlain Heights area, the Department of Health has advised Saint John Water to impose a Boil Water Order to customers between and including all the above-listed addresses.

Saint John Water crews were quick to respond, isolate and repair the leak this afternoon, and have been able to maintain water for customers in the area. However, after any malfunction, leak or break to the drinking water system where there is potential for water contamination, the drinking water must be boiled to ensure it is safe to consume. Saint John Water will notify customers as soon as the Boil Water Order has been lifted in the coming days.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those in the affected area who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand.
