Tuesday, Dec 4 a boil water advisory was prompted for the Town of Carman.

Joe Richardson, Town Superintendent says, the turbidity spike that caused the advisory to be issued kept the water treatment plant staff busy all week until the advisory was lifted.

"We did numerous things. We're not one hundred percent sure what we did to correct it really. We had to aerate the river in two different spots, we cleaned the reservoir, we cleaned all the tanks in the water treatment plant, put it all back online, and it's come back," he says.

Richardson believes that the two aeration spots added to the Boyne River are what brought the turbidity back down again, as the river has been stagnant and filled with lots of algae.

"I really don't know what we did because there are so many processes, but it's back online anyway. All good again."

In the meantime, Carman is looking forward to joining the Pembina Valley Water Co-op as soon as possible.

"It's just waiting for funding. Everything's ready to go. We've got all our ducks in a row, [so] the sooner the better," adds Richardson.
