Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Lifted for South County Business Park; Other Advisories Remain in Place

The Precautionary Boil Water Advisory that had been in place for South County Business Park has been lifted. South County Business Park, located at 567 South County Trail in Exeter, was required to issue a Precautionary Boil Water Advisory because the water system lost pressure.

Before consuming water from the system again, people should clean and sanitize refrigerators with water dispensers and/or ice machines, replace any water treatment filter cartridges, and flush any faucets or taps not used during the boil advisory for 10 minutes. Guidance on refrigerator sanitization can be found online (see the link below).

Several Rhode Island water systems were similarly required to issue Precautionary Boil Water Advisories after the storm on March 2nd. The systems with Precautionary Advisories still in place are:

- URI Alton Jones Whispering Pines Conf. Center - Famous Pizza - Trinity Lutheran Preschool - Davis Mobile Home Park (Chimera, Inc. ) - Sunset Cove Recreation Area - Border Hill Mobile Home Park - North Scituate Elementary School - Rhode Island Welcome Center - The Village on Chopmist Hill - Lakeview Charlestown Early Learning Center - Rockville Mill Community Water System - South Shore Mental Health Center, Inc. - Briggs-Boesch Farm - Alpine Nursing Home - Clark Memorial Library
