A boil order has been issued for the Town of Woodstock. The following recommendations should be followed until the water supply is in compliance with the Health and Clean Water Acts.
Please read the following recommendations carefully:
1. Water should be brought to a boil for 1 minute.
2. Any water to be ingested (for example: brushing teeth, making ice, water used in making coffee/tea or juice, and washing raw vegetables) should be boiled.
3. People whose immune system is compromised (e.g. the elderly, infants, and people with transplanted organs, on dialysis, with HIV/AIDS, etc should pay particular attention to the use of a safe source of drinking water. Water which has been properly boiled is considered a safe source.
4. It is safe for people to take showers, bathe and use swimming pools. Toddlers and infants should be sponge-bathed and caregivers need to ensure no bath water is swallowed.
5. It is safe to wash dishes in hot water and soap, then air dry or use a dishwasher.
6. Please monitor the local radio station or the Townís website www.town.woodstock.nb.ca for updates.
The Town of Woodstock thanks you for your cooperation in this matter and wants to ensure that water quality is very important to us.
