PUBLIC INFORMATION UPDATE FROM THE NORTH STONINGTON DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT - 6/26/2015 2:30 PM
Following the pump station malfunction on Tuesday temporary water service for Holly Green, Kingswood, Meadow wood and Village areas has been put in place. Please conserve water until the permanent water system is operational.
The Fire house has bottled water for those who have been impacted.
Users of the Holly Green, Kingswood, Meadow wood and Village area water system are under a boil advisory if tap water is used for consumption.
To clarify a boil advisory:
Users safely boil water by bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute. A rolling boil means that there are very large bubbles in the water, making the water move very quickly. Make sure the water does not have any floating pieces in it before you boil it. To make the boiled water taste better, pour the water back and forth between two clean containers a few times. Boiled water should be allowed to cool to a safe temperature before drinking or handling.
Use boiled or bottled water when cooking, washing fruits and vegetables, brushing teeth, or making baby formula. Boiled water should be allowed to cool to a safe temperature before drinking and handling.
Use water that has previously boiled and cooled to a safe temperature or bottled water to wash hands when cooking.
Adults and older children do not need to use boiled water to shower or bathe, but should try not to swallow any water or get any water into their mouths. Infants, toddlers, the elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems should be bathed using water that has been previously boiled and cooled to a safe temperature or bottled water.

PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE
June 26, 2015
Attention to all Southeastern Connecticut Water Authority Customers in Kingswood/Meadowwood, the Village, and Holly Green Area
The Southeastern Connecticut Water Authority is issuing a Boil Your Tap Water Advisory for all customers in the affected area due to an accident at the well site location and subsequent repairs.
DO NOT DRINK THE TAP WATER WITHOUT BOILING FIRST
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, beverages, and food preparation, brushing teeth, and making ice UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Boiling is the preferred method to assure that the tap water is safe to drink. Bring all tap water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one (1) minute and let cool before using, or use bottled water. We will have potable drinking water available at the North Stonington Volunteer Fire Company located on Route 2.
We will inform you when you are no longer required to boil your water. To address this problem we are working with the local and state office. We anticipate lifting this order within a week, however repairs to the well site will not be completed for several months.
For more information call: Southeastern Connecticut Water Authority at 860-464-0232 or check the municipal website: www.northstoningtonct.gov.
Thank you all for your patience.

North Stonington 2015 Revaluation
The Town of North Stonington is in the process of completing a mandated revaluation for Grand List Year 2015. Vision Government Solutions was awarded the contract to complete the statistical revaluation which means that not all homes will need to be inspected. Only homes that have sold within the last three years and homes that have taken out a permit to make improvements will require an inspection. Data collected will be used to analyze the current real estate market and make changes to your current assessment. The last time a revaluation was preformed was for the Grand List Year 2011.
Any representative of Vision Government Solutions will have a photo id. You may call Town Hall at 860 535 2877 to get information as to the area the company is working.
As the job progresses, addition information will be posted on this web site.
