Randolph Lifts Boil Water Order Following Clearance from MassDEP
RANDOLPH — The Randolph / Holbrook Joint Water Board reports that the Town of Randolph and Town of Holbrook are NO longer under a Boil Water Order per the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
A Boil Water Order Termination Notice was issued by MassDEP on July 12 at 4:15 p.m.
MassDEP first issued the boil-water order on Wednesday, July 10 after a loss of pressure due to a mechanical fault at the Randolph/Holbrook Joint Water Treatment Plant, located at Pond Street in Randolph.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has since reviewed the corrective actions performed by the Town of Randolph, consisting of increasing the available water pressure and available water to the customers of the Randolph water distribution system.
In addition, two consecutive days of bacteria monitoring throughout Randolph’s water distribution system demonstrated that the Randolph water system meets the MassDEP minimum drinking water standards, as all samples collected were free of bacteria.
