Water Main Break In Warwick Affects Town And Hospital

The Town of Warwick is experiencing a boil water advisory after reports from Sunday morning indicated that pressure dipped from an 18-inch water main near Route 94 and is being repaired and tested for safety. Village Mayor Michael Newhard stated that about 300,000 gallons of water was lost from the tank and reservoir which should be repaired by today but residents should follow the three day boil order as tests will be administered until working order is restored. 911 calls went out to local areas explaining the process of bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute before using until further notice. St. Anthony’s Community Hospital has announced that all surgeries and outpatient services are suspended today after being affected by the main break. Deborah Marshall, spokeswoman for the Bon Secours Charity Health System which owns the hospital said that water tankers have been brought in to be used for cooking and for toilets.
