Precautionary water advisory called for Denare Beach

A precautionary drinking water advisory has been called for the northern village of Denare Beach.

The village announced the advisory July 9 due to "elevated turbidity levels" – an above average amount of suspended particulate matter in the water, in some cases giving it a murky, darker appearance.

Anyone consuming or using water in Denare Beach is asked to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute if needed for drinking or for washing fruits or vegetables, brushing teeth, making ice cubes or other uses. Residents are advised to not use water for washing dishes unless water has been boiled or the dishes are otherwise sanitized. 

Using the water for showers is not recommended against, although residents are advised to not swallow water. Laundry can still be done using tap water.

A possible end date for the advisory is currently unknown.

For any more inquiries or information on the advisory, call the municipal office at 306-362-2054.
