|A boil water notice that was issued Thursday, Sept. 22, for North Attleborough and Plainville was lifted Friday afternoon.|
|According to an announcement from the town, the order was lifted for both towns as of 4 p.m. on, Friday, Sept. 23. The order was put in place following the discovery of E. coli in routine water samples from the raw part of the water system and treatment facility shared by the two towns at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Testing continued over the next two days.|
|“We would like to thank our residents for their cooperation and understanding since the boil water order was issued,” said North Attleboro Town Manager Michael Borg. “We assure our residents that the water has been thoroughly tested and has been deemed safe for public use.”|
Free water was distributed to residents at the North Attleborough DPW office.
|Plainville Town Manager Brian Noble said in the statement that officials from the respective towns worked to address the issue and thanked Mass DEP for their support while the issue was resolved.|
“We would also like to thank everyone who helped distribute water over the past two days for residents in need,” said Noble.
