A boil water advisory is in place for residents of the Meadowvale mobile home park in Miltonvale Park, affecting 150 homes.
The operator of the mobile home park’s drinking water system discovered a break in the main line on Aug. 9, said Ryan Neale, P.E.I.’s manager of environmental health.
“That can be a problem because a break in the system can allow sediment into the water, which could potentially harbour bacteria and viruses,” said Neale. “So as a precaution, we issued a precautionary boil water advisory.”
The break has been fixed and the system was completely flushed out, said Neale.
He noted they are waiting for clear drinking water test results to come back before lifting the advisory.
Those results are expected within the next couple of days.
