NEWS RELEASE 
Distributed November 18, 2015

Boil Water Advisory continued for City of Nanaimo

Residents of Nanaimo are notified that the Boil Water Advisory for users of the City's drinking water system issued Tuesday November 17 remains in effect.  As a precaution, water users should boil their drinking water for one minute at a rolling boil.  The public will be informed as soon as the turbidity issues are resolved and the advisory is lifted.

Turbid water entered the system early in the morning of November 18, as expected.  It is expected to take a few days to work its way through the system.  The City will continue to monitor levels throughout the system, and will advise the public as soon as we can lift the advisory.

Turbidity readings are elevated within the City's drinking water supply system. Residents may notice tap water is discoloured.

Water Supply Operations have ensured that its disinfection equipment is effectively disinfecting water throughout the system.

"The City appreciates Nanaimo's patience and understanding as we continue with the boil water advisory.   It is through an abundance of caution and concern for our citizens' health that we are taking this measure."  -  Bill Sims City of Nanaimo
