WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI) ─ The Rhode Island Department of Health lifted a boil-water advisory for customers of the Westerly Water System.

Health officials issued the advisory on Tuesday due to a water main break, which resulted in the loss of water pressure in multiple areas of the water system.

“The Westerly Water Department repaired the water main break, temporarily increased chlorine in the system (within safe levels), flushed the water mains, and collected bacteria samples that showed the absence of bacteria,” the Health Department said Wednesday.
