September 14th is the 257th day of the year. There are 108 days remaining until the end of the year.

All consumers of the Chatham-Kent Municipal Water Distribution Systems for Wheatley and Tilbury are being urged to boil all tap water ahead of consumption.

The reason for the boil water advisory is due to a loss in water pressure through the distribution system. A fire that broke out at the Wheatley Water Treatment Plant yesterday afternoon, leaving the plant not operational for the time being.

The advisory is in place for:

  • Mint Waterline Association
  • D&O Waterline Association
  • 3rd Concession Waterline Association
  • 3rd & 4th Concession Waterline Association
  • KOA Waterline Association
  • Cedar Inn Water Line Association
  • Richardson Sideroad Waterline Association
  • Tecumseh Waterline Association
  • Tilbury Townline Waterline Association
  • Leamington (Wheatley DS)

Chatham-Kent’s Acting Medical Officer of Health is advising residents to bring the water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to using it for domestic purposes. This advisory measure is in place until Chatham-Kent Public Health receives additional information regarding the water operator.

Safe bottled water sources can be used for consumption.
