Prince Edward County is warning residents to boil their water after fuel spilled from a partially submerged barge was detected in a sampling line at the Picton-Bloomfield drinking water plant.

On Tuesday night, Prince Edward County's mayor declared a state of emergency because contaminants leaking from the barge were floating close to a water intake pipe.
