Public Directed to Avoid Ground Water in Grand Bahama & Abaco

The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) advises the residents of Grand Bahama, Abaco and surrounding Cays to avoid drinking or consuming ground water.  As a result of the severe flooding during Hurricane Dorian, ground water in these islands has the potential to be contaminated with infectious bacteria, chemicals and other pollutants which can cause illness.

Residents are advised to use only clean bottled water for drinking, food preparation and personal hygiene.
