Ottawa Public Health has lifted the boil-water advisory for users of the communal well water system in the Kings Park community in Richmond. The caution is no longer in effect, according to a tweet sent out Monday.
The advisory issued on June 25 was due to a depressurization in the communal well system in the area.
Water users in the affected area had been asked to bring their water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before using it for all consumption purposes, including drinking, making juice, ice and infant formula, as well as for use in food preparation.
