About 50 homes are without water in Quinte West and a boil water advisory is in effect for part of the city, as works crews try to repair a watermain break from this morning.
CAO Charlie Murphy says all residents on the municipal system, who live west of the Trent River, should be bringing their water to a rapid boil before using it for things like cooking and bathing.
