FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BRISTOL COUNTY WATER AUTHORITY HAS NOT ISSUED A BOIL WATER NOTICE.
The Authority has been receiving calls regarding a state wide notice published by the RI Department of Health regarding private drinking water wells.
All of the water supplied to our customers by the Authority comes from the Scituate Reservoir. The Authority does not operate any wells.
The notice, published on the HEALTH website states:
"Due to the excessive snow from the Winter Storm and from rainfall on Monday, some private wells may be impacted. The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) reminds Rhode Islanders who lost water pressure or have a flooded well head (surrounded by water), to take steps to ensure the safety of drinking water: * Boil water for one minute before using it for cooking, drinking, or bathing of infants. * Get water tested for bacteria by a state-certified laboratory.
