Coronation awaiting water line flushing results, still under advisory

Written by Terri Huxley

The Town of Coronation and hamlet of Brownfield are experiencing a blip in water service following the water plant turning off unexpectedly.

Administration is waiting to hear back on test results to ensure all is well at this time. 

The advisory came into effect around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 30.

When under a boil water advisory, residents are asked to use bottled water wherever possible or boil tap water for at least 10 minutes to limit any exposure to germs.

This is a precautionary measure as a power outage caused the generators to stop running.

With zero pressure in the lines, it is required by law to have a boil advisory.

Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Quinton Flint tells the Review they expect to get results back from the water line flushing conducted last night within the next few hours.

From there, the results will determine what path to take next.
