Water treatment plant maintenance will begin this evening in Desbarats.
The Township of Johnson is asking that residents restrict water use to prevent an extended shutdown of the water system, adding that potable water may be stored before maintenance begins at 9 pm.
Once repairs are completed, Algoma Public Health will impose a Boil Water Advisory while it collects water samples.
At that time, water should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before use.
