The Picton water plant could be back up and running Monday.
That is the word from County Mayor Robert Quaiff, regarding the sunken barge in Picton Bay and the contaminants that leaked into the water.
The barge, which sank March 24, was towed from Picton Bay on Monday and the coast guard is also leaving the area.
Quaiff says getting the water plant up and running is a big start, however he says they still must be diligent.
Quaiff says with the water issue, a scam is currently making its rounds.
He says people are going to homes, telling residents they’re municipal staff testing water.
Water’s being supplied from the Wellington water system and there are free 10 litre water jugs at the Picton fire hall on McDonald Drive.
Residents will be limited to two 10 litre jugs per household per day. It is available for pick up between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. daily.
