A water line break on May 10, 2022, has led to the loss of water in the area of 8th Street NW between 2nd and 4th Ave, of the Carman distribution system. Distribution depressurization can compromise the safety of the water supply; therefore, a precautionary boil water advisory has been issued to ensure public health protection.

Until further notice, all water used for consumption should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before it is used.

The precautionary Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the water supplied by this water system no longer presents a risk to public health and should be able to be lifted by Friday, May 13, 2022. Note this Precautionary Boil Water Advisory is only for the affected area. Please refer to the Map above. Please check the Town website for updates on this.

If you have any questions, please contact the Water Plant at 204-745-2481 or the Town of Carman office at 204-745-2443.
