Falmouth water boil advisory lifted
It’s safe to drink from the tap again in Falmouth, according to the Municipality of West Hants.
Falmouth Water Utility consumers were advised on July 2 that the boil water advisory had been lifted, effective 10:20 a.m.
The boil water advisory was issued June 29 at 12:30 p.m. due to high turbidity, which affected the colour of water. It was caused by the excessive rainfall experienced overnight June 28.
A news release on the muni- cipality’s website said the water quality is now considered safe for consumption without boiling.
The Falmouth Water Utility thanked residents for their understanding and patience.
