Boil Water Advisory For A Portion Of The Brandon Public Water System

October 19, 2022

Brandon, MB – Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the Water Treatment Facility lost power earlier this afternoon causing some residents to temporarily lose access to water.  

The power outage on October 19, 2022 has led to the loss of water pressure in the western portion of the Brandon distribution system [south of the Assiniboine River to Richmond, west of 18th Street]. Distribution depressurization can compromise the safety of the water supply; therefore, a boil water advisory has been issued to ensure public health protection. 

Until further notice, all water used for consumption in the affected area should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before it is used for: 

  • Drinking and ice making 
  • Preparing beverages, such as infant formula 
  • Preparing food, including washing fruits and vegetables 
  • Brushing teeth 


The Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the water supplied by this water system no longer presents a risk to public health. You will be notified through a Public Service Announcement when the advisory has been rescinded. 

Please see the attached Public Notice from the Province of Manitoba for more specific instruction for residents and businesses in the area affected by the boil water advisory. 

Standby power has been initiated at the Water Treatment Facility and the system is returning to normal.
