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 the Department of Health to correct the problems as soon as possible.
