NORTH ATTLEBORO AND PLAINVILLE — The Towns of North Attleboro and Plainville would like to inform residents that the boil water notice that was issued Thursday, Sept. 22 has been lifted.
The order was lifted for both towns as of 4 p.m. today, Friday, Sept. 23.
Representatives from each town worked closely with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection since routine water samples from the raw part of the water system and treatment facility shared by the two towns tested positive for E. coli 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,” North Attleboro Town Manager Michael Borg said. “We assure our residents that the water has been thoroughly tested and has been deemed safe for public use.”
“Officials from our respective towns worked diligently to address the issue that was discovered earlier in the week and we thank Mass DEP for their support while the issue was resolved,” Plainville Town Manager Brian Noble said. “We would also like to thank everyone who helped distribute water over the past two days for residents in need.”
