BOIL WATER ADVISORY STILL IN EFFECT

RUSHING RIVERS STIR UP OUR WATER SUPPLY

The following comes directly from the City of Nanaimo website. As of 9:00am today, the boil water advisory is still in effect.

From the City website:

High turbidity levels have been detected in the drinking water supply. High turbidity (cloudiness) levels may occur in surface water sources due to seasonal weather changes causing excessive surface runoff, flooding or lake turnover. High turbidity has been associated with higher occurrences of intestinal illness.

Water users are advised to bring all water to a rolling boil for at least one minute and let it cool before using it or use bottled water. Until further notice, boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice or fountain drinks, brushing teeth and for preparing food that will not be cooked. We will inform you when you no longer need to boil your water. Please check our website at www.nanaimo.ca or listen to 102.3 the Wave for the most up-to-date information. Vancouver Island Health Authority has additional information regarding boil water notices at http://www.viha.ca/mho/environment/water_quality/boil_water/
