Due to apparent contamination of the Three Mile Plains public drinking water supply and the possibility of unsafe water, consumers are advised to boil all water for 2 minutes before drinking, making ice cubes, washing foods, brushing teeth or any other activity requiring human consumption. This is to be done until further notice.
The water utility is doing all it can to determine the cause of the problem and to remedy it as quickly as possible. The water utility, Nova Scotia Environment and the Medical Officer of Health are continuing to monitor the water quality closely and are working in close consultation. Customers are asked to monitor the Municipal website for updates at www.westhants.ca.
Fact sheets on water usage when boil water advisory is in effect are available from the water utility or the local office of Nova Scotia Environment.
