Water supply interrupted, restored at airport

Failed pump wiring was responsible for shutting down the water supply at the Block Island Airport over Christmas week, but service was restored on Thursday, Dec. 26, according to a spokesperson for the Rhode Island Airport Corporation. This was the third interruption of water service at the airport since the Memorial Day Weekend.
The most recent interruption, as it has before, shut down the public restrooms, as well as Bethany’s Airport Diner. The wire failed on Friday, Dec. 20. The water to the restrooms has been restored, but since the water supply is considered public, the Department of Health mandates that it be tested before it is turned back on at the diner, according to Bill Fischer, the spokesperson. Fischer said that he hoped to have the test results back as early as today, Friday, Dec. 27. He said that Bethany Campbell has been “a longstanding, valued tenant” and he wanted her restaurant to be up and running as soon as possible.
