Boil Water Advisory Issued

UPDATE 09-Aug-2020 5:00 PM – Repairs were completed shortly after the problem was detected and many tests have been run by our Public Works staff throughout the town to test the chlorine levels in the water, which appear to be acceptable. However, due to an abundance of caution, it was determined by the appropriate officials to declare a precautionary boil water advisory. Due to couriers and testing facilities not being open today, it is expected that the advisory will remain on until Wednesday. Please continue to follow all advisory information until such time that the advisory is lifted.

UPDATE: Once repairs are completed, a water sample is sent for testing and then AHS must authorize the lifting of the advisory. We are currently estimating that the advisory should be lifted by Wednesday.

Due to the failure of equipment responsible for chlorinating our water, inadequate chlorine disinfection may result. A precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for water from the Fairview Water Treatment plant. This includes all water users within the Town of Fairview, the Hamlet of Bluesky, the Fairview Water Co-op and the truck fill stations in Fairview and Bluesky.
