Most people I spoke to there were getting water to flush toilets.

Also, I understand Health Canada recommends boiling untreated water before consumption. I always boil the water that I collect from Forbay road and Morrisville spring ... when boiling, allow the water to tumble for 2 minutes or more, cool it down then, bobs your uncle! Good drinking water ... or so I heard.

Boiling will get everything but small pieces of dirt... I’d just put a thin cloth over the pipe before putting it into your jugs.

Thank You to Brian and Audrey Benoit as well along with NFL/MAMKA for their assistance...good old team work!

there spring water up by twillick brook up the highway too

This is amazing, caring, thoughtful and I cannot put in to words how I feel about the good people of Conne River for doing this. Great to see the elders and others being looked after. This community is a model for others to learn from. Perfect.
