Inverness Co.’s warden says she’s not sure what took so long to be able to remove a water boil order in an area community at this stage.
Betty Ann MacQuarrie says public works and municipal staff met with Department of Environment officials about three times throughout the process as they tried to work on the problem impacting Judique residents.
She says municipal officials, including Keith MacDonald, their new CAO, had to approve water safety before the boil order was lifted earlier this week; it was implemented Jan. 23.
MacQuarrie tells The Hawk she’s not sure of cost of work at this point.
“No, I don’t have an estimate on that,” she says. “I’m sure we’ll get a report at our next council meeting- each department report at our council meeting.”
MacQuarrie says the problem led to something having to be replaced.
