Belleville has put its water buggy to good use this week, handing out some water to a neighbouring community in a boil water situation.
Belleville is lending a helping hand, in fact, giving hundreds of litres of water to the municipality of Tweed.
Tweed Mayor Jo-Anne Albert calls it a “wonderful” gesture.
Tweed had an issue with its water system Monday, leaving Main street without water and the rest of the town with low water pressure.
A boil water advisory went into effect.
Manager of Belleville’s Environmental Services Perry Decola tells Quinte News that Mayor Taso Christopher and city council offered the city’s water buggy unit as “assistance neighbour to neighbour.”
Half the 1200 litres of potable water was used in the first day.
Tweed Mayor Albert says it’s an example of good neighbours.
The Hastings Prince Edward health unit will undertake water testing, and there must be two days of good tests before the boil water advisory is lifted.
