Boil order still in effect

The watermain is fixed…but the boil order is still in effect for almost 4,000 homes and businesses in north-central Moncton, including five schools.

The precautionary boil water order was instituted Tuesday night after the break in a mainline on Edgett Avenue. The pipe was less than 60 years old and the break is blamed on the freezing and thawing conditions.

The boil order remains in effect for today and likely at least part of tomorrow before they can give the all-clear.
