A boil water advisory has been issued for residents on the New Waterford water system. CBRM’s Water Utility say the advisory is a precautionary response after the test of a single water sample turned up quality concerns on the weekend.
Customers are being advised to boil any water that could be consumed for at least one minute. That includes water for brushing teeth, washing food; or drinking. The advisory covers the communities of New Waterford, River Ryan; Lingan, Scotchtown; and New Victoria.
