Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory-Removed March 10, 2017

Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory
This Advisory applies to all users of the Sask Landing Regional Water Pipeline Utility (Elrose) potable water system and is in effect Friday March 3, 2017 at 1:30 pm and will remain in effect until further notice.
Pursuant to clause 36(1)(a) of The Environmental Management and Protection Act 2010 this Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory is issued due to the utility having to change the raw water source as a result of well failure, therefore the safety of the Sask Landing Regional Water Pipeline (Elrose) drinking water supply cannot be ensured at all times. Therefore, pursuant to Clause 36(1)(b) of The Environmental Management and Protection Act 2010, consumers must be notified to:
(a) Boil all water, used for drinking purposes, for at least One (1) minute, at a rolling boil, prior to usage;
(b) Boil water to be used for other activities where it may be ingested, including:
(i) brushing teeth or soaking false teeth;
(ii) washing fruits and vegetables;
(iii) food or drink which will not be subsequently heated; and
(iv) ice cubes;
(c) not use the water for washing dishes, unless the water has been boiled or the dishes are sanitized in another fashion. Washed dishes and utensils can be soaked in a bleach water solution (approximately 2 tablespoons of bleach per gallon or 10 ml of bleach per liter of water) for at least two minutes after being washed to kill any bacteria which may be present.
Note: Do not mix bleach with soaps or detergents.
Dishes may be disinfected by washing in dishwashing machines that have a dry cycle or a final rinse that exceeds 450C for 20 minutes, 500C for 5 minutes, or 720C for 1 minute.
(d) Not drink from any public drinking fountains supplied with water from the public water supply;
(e) Ensure that younger children and infants are sponge bathed;
(f) Use an alternative water source known to be safe, if they do not wish to boil the water; and
(g) Consult with your physician if you have cuts or rashes that are severe before using the water.
