Advisory of the Day


Extreme Weather


This story is brought to you in part by Lawson Mills Biomass Solutions Ltd

Residents on Newfoundland's west coast had to cope with heavy rainfall and flash-flooding. The City of Corner Brook declared a state of emergency that impacted the residents and led to a precautionary boil order that affected homes and businesses on Phillip Drive, Gushue Place, Beothuck Crescent and Charles street.

Restaurants are required to provide water to their customers, how did they cope during the state of emergency and precautionary boil order?

There are a number of establishments in the northern part of the city. We were able to speak with staff at Gitano's, a restaurant that is "inspired by life on (the) province's best coast" and is located on the lower level of the Millbrook Mall. We were quickly informed the restaurant "was not impacted at by the boil order."

The precautionary boil order affected a sector in southern part of the city. The area affected is largely residential, though there is a local bar. We contacted Gina's Pub, which is located at the nexus of Kent Place, Elizabeth Street, and Wheelers Road. Staff told Water Today that they "provide customers with bottled water." When asked if they ever serve their clients tap water the response was "not during the boil order."

Restaurants in the city, for the most part, were spared having to operate under a boil order. Gina's Pub that was in the sector under the boil order, put their patrons safety first by providing an alternative source of water.
