This Just in – Water Emergency!

Just got the Code Red call that all water for human consumption must be boiled for at least 1 minute. All drinking water, dishwashing water is included. We’ll keep you posted for further information.

For those of you not getting the CodeRED calls – they just went out with the boil order.

Drinking, cooking, ice, brushing teeth – boil water for 1 minute.

To get on the CodeRED list if you are not getting calls, go to the City’s Web Site.

  1. FYI I just spoke with a police officer and he told me that we lost our main water pump at the babson resevoir and is not expected to be on line until Monday. …THIS ONE WILL PROBABLY MAKE GLOUCESTER IN THE NEWS…….great just what we need


  2. Please be assured: Cape Pond Ice is safe and acceptable – packaged ice inventories were put up before August 15 (since that date production was curtailed, by request of the Mayor’s office, to meet the City’s water crisis) , and surplus ice product is being trucked in from sources outside Gloucester to meet needs of consumers, restaurants and ice accounts through this weekend, to assure adequate safe ice supplies. Again: Cape Pond Ice is safe to use! – Scott Memhard, President & GM, Cape Pond Ice Company
