Boil Water Notice
BOIL WATER NOTICE
ID NO. 0144015
System Pressure Advisory!
The water consumers of Town of Canton in Haywood County are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to incoming water conditions and increased sediment load/debris from Tropical Storm Fred in the Pigeon River. 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, when water service is restored consumers are advised to 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.
Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible. This applies to those that lose water, have discolored water, or low pressure. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
