UPDATE: GNB Lifts Boil Water Order For St. Stephen Area

A boil order in the St. Stephen area that lasted 10 days ended on Friday after New Brunswick Public Health wrapped up its tests looking for contaminants in the water supply.

Officials made the announcement in posts on social media, saying that the ban was lifted immediately on Friday afternoon.

“We appreciate your patience and understanding,” the post said.

Public Health issued the boil order for the Municipal District of St. Stephen on March 16 after contaminated water passed through a nearby reservoir and hit town boundaries.

Town staff said engineers investigated the infrastructure failure at the main water well earlier this week.

They said the well will need “significant” repairs, but the damage “does not pose a threat to the water quality of the well.
