The District is advising that repairs to the broken water main in Bracebridge are complete, and the system is undergoing a full system flush, and water testing and sampling is underway. 

But they caution the Boil Water Advisory remains in effect.

The water distribution system is currently undergoing flushing of the system and testing for safe water.

The Boil Water Advisory is in effect until testing results meet the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Samples were taken yesterday after the water main repair, and more samples are being taken today.  The District says the results of these tests are expected tomorrow. 

The District is emphasizing that having water pressure does NOT mean the water is safe to drink.
