IMPORTANT QCBFD WATER SYSTEM UPDATE



We have just received notification from Rhode Island Analytical Laboratories (RIAL) that the results from the analysis of the three (3) follow-up bacteria samples collected from the distribution system on Sunday, November 12th were misread by customer service personnel.  The samples collected from these three locations were absent for bacteria, not positive as previously reported. Therefore THERE IS NO ISSUE with the quality of the water within our distribution system. Per RIDOH regulations we were required to chlorinate our system when initially notified. This was performed on Wednesday Nov 15 about noon time. The chlorine will peak at about 250 mg/ml and by now is probably significantly lower. Therefore, please disregard any health advisories mentioned in the prior eblast of Nov 15. Some chlorine taste, similar to NYC tap water, may persist for several more days.


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy our wonderful Quonnie tap water without concern!
