The Town of Terrenceville has declared a state of emergency after a break in the town's main water line will leave area homes without water for what now is being called an undetermined amount of time.
"We don’t know for how long," Mayor Sheila Cox told The Southern Gazette on Tuesday, Jan. 21. "We are in the process of getting drinking water from Sobeys and No Frills for the residents."
Approximately 255 homes have been impacted, as well as an undisclosed number of apartments.
"They are doing a visual now and assessing the situation," the mayor said.
With no firm timeframe in place for when water will be restored, arrangements also had to be made to provide assistance to the local fire department in the event of a fire.
"The fire department has arranged back up from Grand Le Pierre and English Harbour East fire departments," explained Cox.
