BELLEVILLE – The water from Picton Bay is now safe to drink.

It was officially deemed safe for drinking on Thursday afternoon.

The Hastings Prince Edward Public Health [2] announced that all recent water samples show the water is safe again for residents to drink and use. 

A boil water advisory was issued on March 31 as a result of fuel leaking from a sinking barge in Picton Bay. 

The advisory recommended that residents test their well water even after the issue had been resolved.
