Residents on municipal water in Tilbury and area are under a boil water advisory.
Municipal officials say the advisory is for residents along Coutts Line, Mint Line, Dashwheel Road, Baptiste Road, Jeanette’s Creek Road, Forbes Line and Tecumseh Line, as well as Tilbury proper.
Officials say the reason for the boil water advisory is due to abnormal water sampling results.
The Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Colby, is advising residents in the affected area to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to using it for drinking, making infant formula and juice, brushing teeth, washing raw foods and making ice.
This advisory measure will remain in effect until the Health Unit receives good results from two consecutive sets of samples taken a minimum of 24 hours apart.
