Emergency Boil Water Orders (EBWOs) are issued by the Regional Health Authority when a confirmed threat to public health exists (e.g. microbial contamination). Precautionary Drinking Water Advisories (PDWAs) may be issued by the Water Security Agency (WSA) or the Ministry of Environment when drinking water quality problems may exist although an immediate public health threat has not been identified.
You can access information on EBWOs and PDWAs in Saskatchewan through:

- Precautionary Drinking Water Advisories (PDWA) and Emergency Boil Water Orders (EBWO) Currently in Effect for Health Region Regulated Waterworks
NOTE: WSA and the Ministry of Environment make every effort to post and remove PDWAs and EBWOs in a timely manner. Circumstances may arise that prevent timely revisions. In the event consumers require additional information regarding application of a PDWA or EBWO, they are advised to contact their water supplier, WSA or the Ministry of Environment. If questions arise after hours regarding a PDWA or EBWO, an environmental project officer may be reached by calling 1-800-667-7525.
