Advisory of the Day
RESIDENTS FOREWARNED OF SCHEDULED BWA, MB
Officials in Cormorant, MB used Canada Post and door-to-door knocking to advise the 170 residents of South Cormorant to fill up pails with water in preparation for a scheduled reservoir cleaning that would depressurize the water system on September 9.
"Our water operator is off today, taking care of the water samples and sending them to Winnipeg," says town CAO Candice Genaille. "We have two separate water systems in Cormorant, the south one is not as new as the north one. The plant was shut off for a day but it's up and running again. I'm not sure what the water source is, I think it's well water. Not everyone is on the municipal systems, some have their own wells."
Cormorant is situated on the east shore of Cormorant Lake, in west-central Manitoba, 48 kilometres Northeast of The Pas. The Hudson Bay Railway, owned and operated by Omni Trax Ltd. passes through the community.
