Water Alert

Posted by indigodream on 25 June, 2008

25th June 2008

I’m sure that most of you will have picked this up but I thought I’d put a notice out anyway!

Anglian Water put out a warning today that water supplies in the Northampton area have been contaminated with a nasty bug that causes quite severe stomach upsets. They’re advising people not to use the water for drinking (not even for your pets) or teeth washing unless it’s been boiled. The list of areas listed include some popular boating stops including Braunston – I assume that BW will be putting notices at the relevant water points but here’s the list of affeted area from the Anglian Water website!

Hope this is helpful – we’re out of this area now but I did have an anxious count back to when we last filled in Braunston. Dogs and humans totally fine so we obviously didn’t get the extra bug with our water!
