BOIL WATER ADVISORY IN EFFECT

NANAIMO RESIDENTS ADVISED TO BOIL WATER

As a Nanaimo resident who registered for the Emergency Alert Program with the City of Nanaimo, I received an automated phone call at 9:15am advising that a boil water advisory had been issued.

The VIHA website did not have an alert listed as of 9:15 am but I would expect their site to be updated soon. Residents are advised to listen to 102.3 FM for further advice.

HOW TO BOIL WATER
(the following comes from the VIHA website)

Tap water should be boiled for one minute. Use any clean pot or kettle. Kettles that have automatic shut offs are acceptable.

After boiling, let the water cool by leaving it on the counter or in the refrigerator in covered containers. After water is boiled it can be stored in food grade containers at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

You can bring back flavour by shaking water in a container, pouring the water between two containers, and/or adding a pinch of salt.
