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