As work continues on the water main on East 23rd Street, residents are still under a drinking water advisory between Queensdale and Concession Street.
The Public Health Department issued the advisory last Friday because they said the safety and quality of the water couldn’t be confirmed.
The city says that the conditions that caused the advisory have been resolved but there is no estimate on when the advisory will be lifted.
Further sampling and testing of the water supply is ongoing to verify the initial lab test results and to determine when the advisory can be lifted.
In the meantime residents are advised not to drink the water or use it for brushing teeth; making meals, ice, juice, baby food or formula; washing fruits and vegetables or washing dishes.
Uses NOT a risk are:
Bathing (provided water is not swallowed)
The City is also providing residents with potable water.
