Asvisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by TransNorth-Biomass Stoves

The village of Dorchester, New Brunswick was placed under a Boil Order yesterday. The notice that was posted on the village website and Facebook page stated that the order was issued "due to a water main break, [and] the village water system may be in non-compliance with the Health Act and Clean Water Act." The notice went on to say that the department of health was working with municipal staff and how long to boil the water.

The villagers "will be advised when the boil order is removed."

There were still pieces of information missing, for example, what caused the break, have the repairs been carried out, how long before residents can stop boiling their water? We spoke with the village administration about the situation.

The administration stated that the water main break occurred during a "replacement of a fire hydrant." Staff offered no other explanation for the break and the village being placed under a boil order. They did, however, confirm that "the repair had been completed, and the system has been flushed."

Samples that are to be sent for testing will begin to be "collected today or tomorrow," and results are expected soon after. There is no anticipated date for the removal of the boil all administration would say is that "it [would] be soon." Until then villagers are encouraged to boil their water at least one minute before consuming
