Innisfil, Ontario – Under direction from Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU), the boil water advisory in Cookstown, due to a broken watermain, has been lifted.

Water was restored to Cookstown late in the evening of June 20, however, in accordance with SMDHU guidelines, a boil water advisory was put in place until samples were analyzed for any contaminants.

Those samples have since returned as clear and there is no need for residents of Cookstown to continue to boil their water for drinking or cooking.

Additionally, all roads impacted by the watermain break in the area have been repaired and re-opened.

InnServices and the Town of Innisfil thank the residents and businesses of Cookstown for their patience during this incident. During the boil water advisory, bottled water was made available to Cookstown residents at the Cookstown Fire Hall where approximately 350 cases of water were distributed to residents.

If residents have questions regarding a boil water advisory, information can be found on SMDHU's website.
