Boil Water Order Rescinded (Lifted)

12-May-2016

Please be advised that the Boil Water Order has been rescinded (lifted) for all Saint John Water customers currently under a boil water order including the areas east of the Reversing Falls and including the north end, Millidgeville, South/Central Peninsula and east Saint John. 

Water test results have been reviewed with the Department of Health and the Regional Medical Officer of Health has rescinded the boil water order effective immediately. 

What should you do?

If you have been home over the past few days and have run the water for washing and other things, you do not need to do anything else, since by using the water you have effectively flushed out old water and brought fresher water into your plumbing.

If you have been away from your home during this period and have not run any water, it is recommended that you take a few minutes to flush out the water in your plumbing. This can be done by simply turning on each of the taps in your house for a few minutes. This will remove the water that has been sitting in the pipes while you were away and will draw cleaner, fresher water into your house.

Saint John Water apologizes for any inconveniences you have experienced and wishes to thank you for your cooperation and support.
