The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) has lifted the cautionary boil water advisory issued after Hurricane Sandy to a Glocester-based water system. The Village on Chopmist Hill 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 a cautionary boil water advisory 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.
A cautionary boil water advisory remains in effect for YMCA Camp Fuller in Wakefield. The water system is working with HEALTH to correct the problem as soon as possible.
