PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A boil water order continues for tens of thousands of people served by the Kent County Water Authority because of E. coli found in a water storage tank, but a test is expected back that could put an end to it.
A third round of test results is expected back on Wednesday. If the result is free of E. coli, the boil order will be lifted.
A boil advisory is affecting about 25,000 residential and business customers.
Three consecutive days of normal results are required before the advisory will be lifted. Monday's and Tuesday's came back clean.
As of Tuesday, no illnesses had been reported.
