Boil Water Order In Immediate Effect
Please be advised, that effective immediately a boil water order has been issued in the Town of Torbay for residents on the municipal water system due to a malfunction in the Town’s water disinfection plant.
Residents are advised that all water use for consumption such as drinking, brushing teeth, cooking, and washing fruits and vegetables should be brought to a rigorous, rolling boil for one minute.
This advisory will be in effect until further notice.
The Town is already working to resolve these issues and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. We will continue to update residents on a regular basis on the Town’s website, social media streams and on the Torbay Alerts system.
The risk to the public is low for this problem, however, if you or your family are seeing symptoms such as diarrhea, fever or vomiting we urge you to seek medical attention.
9:00am May 11th Update: Residents are advised that the Boil Water Order is LIFTED. The Town thanks residents for their understanding and patience this past week, but municipal water users can now use the Town’s water system as per normal.
