Boil Water Order Remains in Place

Homes and businesses east of the Reversing Falls bridge are now into day three of a boil water order.

Officials say a valve was left open and chlorine gas failed to treat the water for about 15 minutes on Friday morning.

Tests on the system have been and will continue to be conducted as officials look for the green light to allow home-owners and businesses to turn their taps back on.

The Millidgeville area is the one exception where water doesn't have to be boiled. The earliest the order can be lifted is tomorrow afternoon.

Department of Transportation Sets a New Record

A record will be reached tonight at midnight but it will come and go with very little fan-fare.

Spring weight restrictions for heavy trucks will be lifted from all provincial highways, nearly four weeks ahead of schedule.

This is the earliest removal of the spring weight restriction in the Province's history.

The weight restrictions are put in place to protect highways from damage during the spring thaw by reducing allowable weights.

New Look Coming for Millenium Drive

Quispamsis may soon be the home of a new Pre-Fabricated Homes Sales Lot.
