Boil water order lifts for part of Dieppe

By News May 5, 2023 | 12:27 PM

The City of Dieppe has lifted a boil water order which was put in place on Wednesday.

In a statement released just before noon on Friday, city officials say the order has been lifted for all residents from 401 to 851 Dover Road, on Bayview Court, Ulysse Drive, André Drive, Telex Lane, Jocelyn Lane, Sophie Lane, Florida Drive and Dover Estates.

The city has listed several measures that residents should take now that the order is over:

  • Cold interior and exterior water faucets: Run tap water for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Hot water faucets: Run tap water for at least 15 minutes for a 40-gallon hot water tank and at least 30 minutes for a 80-gallon hot water tank or larger.
  • Water dispensers from refrigerators should be flushed with at least one litre of water before consumption.
  • After flushing hot and cold water pipes, run dishwasher empty one time.
  • Discard any water used in humidifiers and rinse the device with clean water.
  • Automatic ice dispensers should be emptied of ice made during the boil water order. Then, discard any ice made over an additional 24-hour period to assure that any potential contaminated water has been discarded.

Residents who notice a lack of water pressure or discoloured water are asked to call 877-7990 or 850-5104 (after business hours).
