SRF Announces Fourth Boil Advisory As Piping Work Continues

Another Boil Water Advisory has been given by the Town of Smooth Rock Falls.

The Ontario Clean Water Agency Senior Operator Bruce Larstone says from Hollywood and Ross Road North to the end of Cloutier Ville Road is what the advisory covers.

Larstone says effective immediately residents are required to boil their tap water during this period of time.

Smooth Rock Falls has been dealing with an immense amount of advisories while they continue work on changing over piping within the community.

Larstone says the Porcupine Health Unit’s boil water tips page can inform residents on how to properly use water during an advisory.

The PHU’s tip page says boiling water for at least a minute before use is necessary, but you can use tap water for washing clothes, taking showers for non-infants, shaving and flushing toilets.

They insist that you boil water to handle many tasks around the home such as brushing teeth, handwashing, preparing food, making coffee and giving water to pets.

The PHU also stresses that you should not swallow any tap water used for showers or baths.

For further details on the advisory you can go to the tips page.
