Northwest Primary School Drinking Water Problem Corrected

As a customer of Northwest Primary School, we notified you on April 1, 2021, of a problem with our drinking water and were advised to only use the water for toilet flushing to maintain sanitary conditions of the building. We are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and that it is no longer necessary to not use the water. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
