Carman residents are being urged to boil water until further notice, after a failure in the Carman Public Water System treatment process. Routine monitoring indicates some poorly treated water entered the distribution system.

For public health protection, Manitoba Health and Manitoba Sustainable Development issued a boil water advisory late Tuesday evening.

All water should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before being used for consumption of:
- Drinking and ice making
- Preparing beverages, such as infant formula
- Preparing food, including washing fruits and vegetables
- Brushing teeth

Adults and children who are able to avoid swallowing water can shower, bathe, and brush teeth as per usual. If boiling on a stove top or in a kettle is not practical, other water sources like bottled water are recommended.
