Captain Street fountain out of order

1 Mins read

Maurice Bradley is reminding constituents that the popular drinking fountain at Captain Street has been deemed ‘unsatisfactory’ to consume, following testing.

Bradley understands that a routine sample led to Council’s Environmental Health Department prohibiting the use of the fountain.

It is believed the fountain dates back to the 1870’s.

PHA guidance indicates that the fountain will remain out of order until two satisfactory samples are taken. It is understood that further tests will be carried out this week.

Bradley said: “Tests are carried out regularly on the fountain. I would urge those that use it to take heed of the Council’s advice until Council gives the thumbs up that it is safe to use again.”

A council spokesperson said “A routine water sample was taken and it had returned bacteriologically unsatisfactory.

We have resampled and as per PHA guidance the prohibition will be lifted on receipt of 2 consecutive satisfactory results. We will be carrying out further samples this week.”
