A boil-water advisory issued in Boissevain on Saturday remains in effect as of Monday evening.
The advisory was prompted by a waterline break earlier that day on Buckingham and Broadway streets.
The break caused a loss of water pressure in the community, which can compromise the safety of the local water supply, according to a press release.
The advisory will remain in effect until the water supplied by this water system no longer presents a risk to public health, the release said. As of 6:30 p.m. Monday, the advisory was still listed as ongoing on the Manitoba government’s website.
In the meantime, tap water used for drinking, ice making, preparing beverages and food, and brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute prior to consumption.
