Customers of the Town of Chatham south along Rt. 57 Callands Road near its intersection with Moses Mill Road South were notified on Monday, July 26, 2021 of a problem with our drinking water, and were advised to boil all drinking/cooking water until further notice.  
  • A water line break occurred at the intersection of Callands Road and the break was corrected on Tuesday, July 27 2021.The Boil Water Notice was issued on Tuesday as a safety precaution while the bacteriological quality of the water distributed in the water system was checked after the repaired line was returned to service. 
  • Water sampling performed on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 resulted in all distribution samples testing negative for detection of bacteria in the water.  Therefore, we are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and that it is no longer necessary to boil all drinking/cooking water.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
