The Connecticut Water Company today said tap water is safe to drink in Suffield, despite a water main break yesterday.
“This afternoon lab results confirmed that the tap water for customers affected by Wednesday’s water main break in Suffield is safe to drink, and the precautionary boil water advisory has been cancelled,” said company spokesman Daniel J. Meaney in a written statement. “This means that all Suffield customers can drink their tap water and use for all other purposes without taking any precautions.”
The water main break calused low pressure, or cut water service to customers in the area near the Route 190 bridge. About 40 streets were affected.
“No customer in Suffield needs to boil their tap water or take any other precautions before drinking or using for any other purposes,” Meaney said.
