The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is issuing a precautionary boil water advisory for consumers of the SUEZ water system on two streets in Wakefield.
The advisory is in effect for consumers on Narragansett Avenue and on Old Tower Hill Road from the Dale Carlia Shopping Center to the Wakefield Mall.
As a result of a water main issue, these consumers currently do not have water service. SUEZ is working to address the issue.
Once service is restored, customers in this area should boil their water for one minute before it is consumed. This includes drinking, cooking, baking, washing dishes, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula, mixing juices or drinks, and feeding pets. However, the water does not to be boiled for bathing or washing clothes.
The precautionary boil water advisory will remain in effect until it is lifted by RIDOH.
For more information, customers should contact the SUEZ water system at 401-789-0271.
