The Town of Carman is under a precautionary boil water advisory. This advisory is in place in order to complete repairs to the water main break. Water will be shut off overnight for repairs to take place. Service should be restored fully by morning but the precautionary boil water advisory will be in place until further notice.
 
RECOMMENDATIONS
Until further notice, all water used for consumption should be brought to a rolling boil for at least
one minute before it is used for:
 Drinking and ice making
 Preparing beverages, such as infant formula
 Preparing food, including washing fruits and vegetables
 Brushing teeth
It is not necessary to boil tap water used for other household purposes, such as laundry or washing
dishes. Adults and older children that are able to avoid swallowing the water can wash, bathe, or shower.
Young children should be sponge bathed. If boiling is not practical, an alternate and safe supply of water
should be used for consumptive purposes; i.e. bottled water. Boil Water Advisory Fact Sheet #1 – Boil
Water Advisory For Manitoba Water System Users contains additional information on water use
and can be found on the website below.
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 Fact Sheet #3 – Boil Water Advisory For
Commercial/Public Facilities. A copy of this Fact Sheet is available on the website below.
To avoid burn injuries from hot water, caution should be taken. Please keep young children away from
boiling water. Place kettles and pots away from counter and stove edges.
Please share this information with other people who use the tap water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (ex: renters, tenants, staff, or clients). This notice can also be posted in
common areas where people tend to gather.
DURATION
The Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the water supplied by this water system no longer
presents a risk to public health. You will be notified when the advisory has been rescinded.
