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.

OFFICE CLOSED FRIDAY, MAY 5th

Please note that the Village Office will be CLOSED all day Friday, May 5th due to a scheduled BC Hydro power outage. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Road Advisory from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations:

Please be advised that additional road maintenance activities will be taking place along various sections of the Zeballos Forest Service Road to address recent storm damage. The road maintenance work will be taking place over the next 2-3 weeks.
