Boil Water Advisory lifted for 100 Mile House
100 MILE HOUSE, BC – A boil water advisory issued on June 7 for the District of 100 Mile House, due to pressure loss in the water system and a potential for contamination, has been lifted.
After isolating the reason for the pressure loss late Tuesday afternoon, The Public Works department undertook flushing and testing of the system as quickly as possible, with the goal of having the boil water advisory lifted before the weekend. We are happy to report that has been achieved. Testing of water samples from Wednesday and Thursday (24 hours apart) have indicated the water is safe to drink, meeting Interior Health’s criteria for lifting the notice.
The District would also like to reiterate its thank to District firefighters, administrative staff, public works department, the South Cariboo Search and Rescue volunteers, and the 100 Mile House community for their assistance and understanding.
Roy Scott – Administrator
District of 100 Mile House
