A malfunction at the Hawkesbury water treatment plant has the town and the Eastern Ontario Health Unit warning residents to boil drinking water until further notice.

The warning was issued late Sunday night after an incident of decreased pressure at the plant. Officials in the town about 90 kilometres east of Ottawa say they’re working with the health unit to find the source of the problem and fix it.
