ST LUNAIRE-GRIQUET, NL: BWA TO BE LIFTED SOON IN NL TOWN; LOCAL BAR WEIGHS IN



A burst water main has led to a Boil Water Advisory (BWA) being issued in the town of St. Lunaire-Griquet, Newfoundland. The town, located on the North East tip of the peninsula of Newfoundland, has been under the advisory since April 22nd.

A representative for the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment for the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador confirmed via email that all 618 people living in the town are affected.

St. Lunaire-Griquet's mayor, Dale Colbourne said that construction on the broken water main has been recently completed.

"I would be very surprised if it wasn't lifted by tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest," she said," it's a fairly short process when it's a waterline break."

Colbourne informed us that water quality tests have been sent off to a department of health lab in the town of St. Anthony and that she is expecting results back from them soon.

Travis Blake, who works at Skipper Hot's Lounge, a local bar and music venue, said that they are not on the town water supply.

"We have our own well, pump and purifications system," he said, "So things don't really affect us."

According to online reviews, out-of-town visitors to the pub are probably more likely to be getting "screeched" and "kissing the cod" than enjoying a glass of water.
