Saskatchewan’s Water Security Agency has issued a precautionary drinking water advisory order for the Town of Naicam due to a system depressurization.

The order covers the entire town and any water sourced from the town’s supply until further notice. The Water Security Agency advised boiling all water for at least a minute prior to use, and using only boiled water for drinking, washing food, and brushing teeth.

“Do not drink from any public drinking fountains supplied with water from the public water supply,” the agency said in a statement issued Monday morning. “Use an alternative source known to be safe.”

Anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms was advised to seek medical attention, and all affected residents were advised to watch for updates online.
