Due to ongoing construction and the need to constantly shut off the Town's water supply a precautionary boil water advisory is now in effect.
Please note that although the water supply you receive is being chlorinated it is advised that you bring any water you intend on digesting to a rapid boil for 1 minute before use.
This advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - WATER LOSS OVER THE NEXT 2 WEEKS
The water will be shut off at intermittently as work is completed on the sewer project over the next two weeks.
Due to the fact that we do not know when and for how long this will occur we are providing this notice to let residents know that they should expect water loss on and off repeatedly.
Please be prepared with drinking water, cooking water and water for the bathrooms!
I will post on facebook as soon as possible the times of losses and when its turned back on as I know it is happening.
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

The Bay de Verde Heritage House was built in 1896 by Mr. John Blundon and family of Bay de Verde. The structure of the house is a good example of Merchant Class Victorian housing. The house was donated by Mrs. Dorothy Blundon and family to the Town of Bay de Verde on September 16, 1996 (exactly 100 years after it was constructed). It is now preserved and used as a Heritage House.
