Boil water advisory ends

ERIN – A boil water advisory has ended in Erin.

The advisory was in effect last weekend for those hooked up to the town’s water system following a watermain break on March 24.

The town took to Twitter and Facebook to inform residents on the Friday morning, after the contractor doing work for the town’s new wastewater treatment plant broke through the watermain at Main and Water Streets around 9am.

The Ontario Clean Water Agency, which manages Erin’s water system, issued the boil water advisory as a precaution and responded to repair the watermain. 

Full water supply was restored at 1:30pm on Friday afternoon, according to the OCWA.

The advisory was lifted on March 26, when tested water samples returned with safe results.
