Residents living between 401 to 851 Dover Road, Bayview Court, Ulysse Drive, André Drive, Telex Lane, Jocelyn Lane, Sophie Lane, Florida Drive and all residents of the Domaine Dover Estates are affected.

  • All water destined for drinking, preparing infant formulas and juices, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking, brushing teeth and dental hygiene is held at a rolling boil for at least one minute, including water that is used for washing teeth, making ice, making coffee/tea or juice and washing fruits and vegetables. This is particularly important for those whose immune system is compromised (i.e. elderly, infants, people with transplanted organs, on dialysis, etc.). Please note that home water filtration devices (water softener, pitcher filters, etc.) cannot eliminate microorganisms that could make you sick.
  • Water can be boiled in a pot, in a kettle on a stove or in an electric kettle without an automatic shut-off.
  • It is not necessary to boil water used for other household purposes such as bathing, showering, laundry or washing hands and dishes. When bathing or showering, avoid swallowing the water.

Questions can be directed to the Water and Sewer Department at 877-7990 or call 850-5104.

A notice will be issued once the order is lifted.
