Boil Water Order Lifted
The boil water order at the Saint John Airport has been lifted, airport officials confirmed today.
The department of health issued the boil order in late October after routine monitoring revealed heightened levels of turbidity, or cloudiness which can interfere with the effectiveness of the treatment process.
The airport’s water supply, which comes from Robertson Lake, is treated and provided to the terminal building and all tenants on the airport property under an approval to operate issued by the provincial department environment and local government.
Saint John Airport personnel will continue to monitor turbidity levels.
The airport’s 2018 capital plan includes funding to study and design long-term capital investments to ensure the airport and its tenants have consistent access to safe, clean drinking water.
