Boil Water Advisory LiftedOctober 7, 2023
Update: Thursday, October 5, 2023
The boil water advisory remains in effect and will remain in effect until sample results indicate that the water is safe to consume. Samples have been taken and sent to the lab for analysis. Because of shipping logistics and the length of analysis, results will not be available until Saturday at the earliest.
If you prefer not to boil your water, an alternate source of drinking water is being made available to you at the Water Plant. From 7:30 AM to 15:30 PM. Please, bring your own clean container.
The water storage tank levels remain high. There will not be a scheduled decrease this evening.

The water storage tank levels are much better this morning and there will not be a scheduled decrease this morning. However, water is leaving the plant at almost twice the normal level so we will continue to monitor the situation to determine if flows are high temporarily as residents resume normal water use or if it indicates a potential leak. Before noon, we will assess the need to decrease later in the day.
Date: Sunday, October 1st, 2023
Area Affected: Moose Factory Island
In the interest of protecting public health, a precautionary Boil Water Advisory is being issued, effective immediately.
Because of issues at the plant overnight, the water pressure is scheduled to be decreased on Sunday, October 1st:
- From 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. if there is water available
- Water pressure will be restored to normal between 5:00 P.M and 6:30 P.M.
- Decreased again at 6:30 P.M. to 6:00 A.M.
The need to decrease the water will be reassessed tomorrow.
Water conservation is desperately needed today to prevent running out of water completely. We apologize for the short notice and inconvenience the decrease may cause.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause
