September 18th is the 261st day of the year. There are 104 days remaining until the end of the year.

The Boil Water Advisory and Water Conservation Request remains in effect for consumers of the Chatham-Kent Municipal Water Distribution System in Wheatley and Tilbury.

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.

Residents looking for updates on the advisory status are being encouraged to call the Water Advisory Line at 519-436-3250. The line is available 24/7.
