Fal­mouth wa­ter boil ad­vi­sory lifted

Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
