Cloverdale Water Supply System Boil Water Alert

4 December 2018

Problems with water treatment mean that drinking water in the Cloverdale Water Supply System is unsafe due to poor raw water quality or treatment failure

Water used for drinking or food preparation should be brought to a rolling boil to make it safe. Kettles with automatic shut off switches can do this. Water should then be allowed to cool and stored in a clean container with a lid and refrigerated. 

Bottled water or cool boiled water should be used for drinking, washing uncooked food (e.g. salad vegetables and fruit), making ice, cleaning teeth, gargling and pet’s drinking water.

Dishes should be washed in hot soapy water or in a dishwasher. Children should take bottled water or cool boiled water to school.    

This advice should be followed until further notice.
