A boil water advisory enacted in Porcupine on Monday has now been lifted, the city says.

The advisory, enacted Nov. 21, has been lifted as Nov. 24 at 4:55 p.m.

The City of Timmins has conducted the required water sampling and the results are deemed satisfactory by the city and the Porcupine Health Unit, the city said in a news release.

A boil water advisory was enacted as a precautionary measure on Monday due to repairs on a watermain.

The watermain services users east of the Bristol Road and Hwy 101 intersection in Porcupine.

Water was shut off to complete repairs and later restored on Monday evening.

However, the boil water advisory remained in effect until the city obtained drinking water results in two consecutive sets of samples taken a minimum of 24 hours apart.

The city apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused and thanked residents for their cooperation.
