PUBLIC INFORMATION UPDATE FROM THE NORTH STONINGTON DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
6/24/2015 10:30AM

Temporary water service for Holly Green, Kingswood, Meadow wood and Village areas have been put in place. Please conserve water until the permanent water system is operational.

The Fire house and the Rocky Hollow Rec Area have hoses available to fill up containers and bottled water for those who are affected.

Users of the Holly Green, Kingswood, Meadow wood and Village area water system are under a boil advisory if tap water is used for consumption.  

To clarify a boil advisory:
Users safely boil water by bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute. A roiling boil means that there are very large bubbles in the water, making the water move very quickly. Make sure the water does not have any floating pieces in it before you boil it. To make the boiled water taste better, pour the water back and forth between two clean containers a few times. Boiled water should be allowed to cool to a safe temperature before drinking or handling.

Use boiled or bottled water when cooking, washing fruits and vegetables, brushing teeth, or making baby formula. Boiled water should be allowed to cool to a safe temperature before drinking and handling.

Use water that has previously boiled and cooled to a safe temperature or bottled water to wash hands when cooking.

Adults and older children do not need to use boiled water to shower or bathe, but should try not to swallow any water or get any water into their mouths. Infants, toddlers, the elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems should be bathed using water that has been previously boiled and cooled to a safe temperature or bottled water.

If additional information is needed please contact the department of emergency management at 860-857-2614 or check the town website.
