The Municipality of West Nipissing has advised Moose FM that there is a major watermain break in Verner at highway 64, and crews are on-site to make repairs.

Because there was pressure loss throughout the entire town, the North Bay Health Unit is issuing a boil water advisory to all municipal water users in Verner.  The Health Unit says the advisory will be in place for at least three days.

Due to the break in the drinking water supply line in Verner, École élémentaire catholique Ste-Marguerite-d’Youville is closed today, Thursday, February 4, 2021. Should you have any questions, please call Conseil scolaire catholique Franco-Nord at 705-472-1702.
