WATER NOTICE - UPDATE
November 17, 2020 4:00 p.m.
The Town of Botwood wishes to advise residents of Botwood, Northern Arm and Peterview along with Swanee Pool Road that the water service will be turned on tonight, Tuesday, from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m.. The water will go off again at 9:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, Wednesday.
Residents may experience dirty water and/ or low water pressure when water service resume.
This is to allow residents an opportunity to store some water for minimal services. By doing this it should allow some water to go into the holding tank for fire protection. On Wednesday town staff will be conducting some water testing and residents may experience loss of water during this time.
Residents are reminded that a Water Boil Order is still into effect and water for consumption must be boiled for at least one minute.
The Town apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
Here's a Q&A sheet from CNWM prepared for their new policy on collection from garbage boxes - we think it will answer many of the questions put forward in recent days. This policy was implemented September 1, 2020 and covers all communities, with some 18,000 residents, served by CNWM including Gander, Bishop's Falls, Point Leamington, and Peterview.
