Important notice -- Boil water advisory.

There has been an incident at the Antwerp Springs water pumphouse. The shallow aquifer has been compromised and GVW has issued a Boil Water Notice for all residents on the Antwerp Springs system. This includes parts of Lavington, and west, potentially as far as Kal High School, including Coldstream Elementary and Municipal Hall. District crews have switched over the water source to the deep well and will be flushing and monitoring throughout the night. At this point it is hard to determine how far in the system the contaminated water has spread, so initially the Notice will cover the entire Antwerp system.

Please advise your neighbours who might not have seen this notice!

Hi Gyula,

Thanks for the details. Amazingly this warning does not appear on the GVW site. I have had a call from the Hill Dr area where someone took a shower and "cow *hit came out!" This could be serious. Sounds like someone manured a frozen field...stupid.
