PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The RI Department of Health has lifted the cautionary boil water advisory issued last week to an Exeter-based water system; Wolf Rock Country Kitchen, 806 South County Trail.

The problems with the system have since been corrected the water is safe to use and consume as normal.

A total of 19 water systems were issued cautionary boil water advisories in the wake of Hurricane Sandy due to low or no pressure in their systems. Low or no pressure makes a water system vulnerable to contamination, inviting bacteria and other contaminants 

Three water systems still have cautionary boil water advisories in effect:

  • Carousel Marketplace, Charlestown;
  • The Village on Chopmist Hill, Glocester;
  • YMCA Camp Fuller, Wakefield.

Authorities are working with the RI Dept. of Health to fix these systems. More information will be provided as it is made available.

If you have questions about the status of your water system, you can contact the RI Dept. of Health info line at 401-222-5960.
