Water Shut-Off June 21st

CANCELLED Boil Water Notice CANCELLED

The Environmental Health Officer is recommending that the Boil Water Notice be lifted.

This is a result of the Water System being repaired and normal flows and pressures returned, the system has been thoroughly flushed and water sample results came back with no total coliform or E.coli counts.

No further boiling of water is required prior to using.

We can go back to enjoying the best tasting tap water in BC and the Yukon.

We thank everyone for their cooperation and understanding.
