The “Boil Water Advi­sory” for the Town of Rivers is a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure to ensure the safety of our cit­i­zens .  At this time we are unable to guar­an­tee that our water is treated to the accept­able stan­dards of the day.

With the extreme cold we have endured this win­ter we have numer­ous by-pass lines open to pre­vent the freez­ing up of our dis­tri­b­u­tion system.  As a result we are now dis­trib­ut­ing water from our treat­ment facil­ity faster than we can effec­tively treat it.  Further, the tem­per­a­ture of the incom­ing water is much colder than we’ve seen in the past and is com­pli­cat­ing the treat­ment process.

This advi­sory could end up being for the short term, but, it could also quite eas­ily be for an extended period of time and cit­i­zens should pre­pare them­selves accordingly.  

If you see our Pub­lic Works team around give them a cheer.  If it wasn’t for their unwa­ver­ing efforts we would have no water at all.


The Town of Rivers and Rural Munic­i­pal­ity of Daly have been home to many res­i­dents and busi­nesses since the “door to the land of promise” was opened wide in 1907 by Grand Trunk Pacific Rail­way pres­i­dent Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson. This home town com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to attract indus­try, busi­ness, res­i­dents and vis­i­tors for the many advan­tages of liv­ing in a small com­mu­nity — friendly and help­ful peo­ple, secu­rity, peace­ful­ness with all the ameni­ties of a larger cen­tre. The Town of Rivers and the Rural Munic­i­pal­ity of Daly are no excep­tions to the rule. In this com­mu­nity, peo­ple always greet you with a smile and are will­ing to help out when you need a hand. Rivers has its own police depart­ment, hos­pi­tal, and two schools with a grow­ing eco­nomic base, recre­ation facil­i­ties, and many sup­port­ive com­mu­nity groups.


The Town of Rivers is seek­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives to sit on the fol­low­ing Boards.
