The Precautionary Boil Water Advisories that had been in place for North Scituate Elementary School, Alpine Nursing Home (Coventry), and Trinity Lutheran Preschool (Hopkinton) have been lifted. These systems were required to issue Precautionary Boil Water Advisories because they lost pressure.
Before consuming water from these systems 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 - Davis Mobile Home Park (Chimera, Inc.) - Sunset Cove Recreation Area - Border Hill Mobile Home Park - 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 - Clark Memorial Library
