Water back on at Pasqua Hospital, but don't drink it yet

The Pasqua Hospital finished repairs on a water line leak early Saturday morning, but the water can't be drank until it's tested.

Crews finished repairs to water line leak early Saturday morning

The water lines were shut down for repairs on Friday afternoon.

The water is back on at Pasqua Hospital, but you still can't drink it.

Water was shut off at the hospital Friday afternoon to allow crews to repair a leak in the lines.

The work was completed early Saturday morning, and the water was then turned on again for restroom usage and other services.

However, the water can't be consumed until it's tested and found safe to drink.

The hospital says it expects this to happen Sunday morning at the earliest.

Bottled drinking water is available onsite.
