One Cautionary Boil Water Advisory Lifted for Water System in Exeter in Wake of Hurricane Sandy; Three Advisories Remain in Effect in Rhode Island

The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) has lifted the cautionary boil water advisory issued last week to an Exeter-based water system. Wolf Rock Country Kitchen, 806 South County Trail, has corrected the problem and the water from this water system is safe to use and consume.

A total of 19 water systems were issued cautionary boil water advisories following Hurricane Sandy due to low or no pressure in their systems. Low or no pressure makes a water system vulnerable to contamination, inviting bacteria and other contaminants.

Three water systems still have cautionary boil water advisories in effect. They are:

* Carousel Marketplace, Charlestown;

* The Village on Chopmist Hill, Glocester;

* YMCA Camp Fuller, Wakefield.

The water systems are working with HEALTH to correct the problems as soon as possible.
