On the evening of Dec 4, a boil water advisory was issued for the Town of Carman due to turbidity levels (cloudiness) in the water. This morning the go-ahead to lift the advisory was given by Drinking Water Officer, Kale Black.

Black advised Dr. Michael Routledge, Medical Officer of Health for Southern Health-Santé Sud, that the water has met all the conditions for ending the precautionary advisory.

Normal water usage can be resumed for all residents within the Town of Carman, now that the water is testing positively.

According to the most recent report from the Superintendent to Town Council, since Dec 3 the Town borrowed a diffuser from the Letellier Water Treatment Plant, the pipes at the plant were cleaned, the reservoir was drained and cleaned, two separate bubblers were installed into the Boyne River, and the CO2 tank and mixer tank were cleaned.

On Sunday, Dec 9, a safety notice was also issued about an aerator hole cut into the Boyne River near Ryall Park. Citizens are asked to stay off the river and ice in the area due to safety concern. They note, people may also notice a strong smell in the park due to the close proximity of the aerator. It is still unknown if the addition of the aerator is related to the boil water advisory.
