Boil Water Advisory: DEC 28, 2022
ID NO. 01-44-015
Boil Water Advisory!
The water consumers of the Town of Canton, in Haywood County are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to numerous water main breaks in the areas of Spruce Street, North Main, High Street and surrounding areas. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Therefore, the Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This ofﬁce is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notiﬁcation is issued. This advisory issued on December 28, 2022 by:
