Most of Boissevain will be without water for about a four hour period on Monday.

A water main leak discovered in Boissevain on Friday will be fixed Monday, April 10th.

**As a result, Boissevain School and nursery school have been cancelled for Monday. School officials are preparing to have drinking water for Tuesday. Teachers have also been told to stay home Monday.**

Boissevain Utility Department has located a water main leak on Stephen Street. This leak will require water to be shut off to repair the line. A planned water outage will occur on Monday, April 10 from approximately 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The planned outage will affect all utility users with the exception of those in the southeast corner: from Johnson Street east to Aikman, and from South Railway south to Mountain Street.

Please be aware, once water has been turned back on, a boil water advisory will be in effect.


Tips to prepare for the water outage and boil water advisory:

• Fill pots on the stove with water for cooking.

• Fill potable water containers for drinking. Assume about one gallon of drinking water per person per day.

• Fill bathtubs with water and use buckets to flush toilets. A toilet will flush when approximately a gallon of water is dumped into the bowl.

• During the water outage try not to operate the water faucets. This will prevent air from entering your plumbing.

• All commercial, public and permitted facilities (ex: restaurants, health care facilities, day cares, personal care homes and other private facilities that provide food and water services) must follow water use recommendations from the Boil Water Advisory.
