Water supply tested with no adverse results

A boil water advisory issued to residents of Markstay on Friday, Jan. 24, has been lifted, reported the Sudbury and District Health Unit.

“The bacteriological quality of the water supply has been tested with no adverse results being reported,” said Burgess Hawkins, a manager in the health unit’s environmental health division.

The Health Unit is issued the boil water advisory due to a lack of disinfection in the municipal water system.

Mark Rondina, an environmental support officer with the health unit, told Northern Life the chlorine in the Markstay water tower dissipated due to a probable line break from the water treatment plant in Wahnapitae.

With the advisory lifted, the health unit has advised Markstay residents to run cold water faucets for one minute before using the water.

The health unit also advises home owners to drain and refill hot water heaters set below 45 C.
