Water advisory issued for Canim Lake area residents

On Jan. 9 the Cariboo Regional District issued a Water Notice to residents in the Canim Lake area. The Notice applies to the following water supply system: Canim Lake Water System, Operating Permit Number 14-091-00001 and should be considered by all persons using water from the system.

This Water Notice is being issued due to a contamination of the system; therefore, all users of the Canim Lake water system are asked to stop using the water for drinking, cooking and bathing immediately, as a safety precaution.

The CRD has contacted Interior Health to request their cooperation in investigating this matter. During this time, an alternate water source will be available at the Forest Grove Fire Hall located at 4518 Canim-Hendrix Lake Road.  Personal water jugs may be filled with water at the outside tap at the back of the fire hall.

This Notice remains in effect unless and until another public notice is issued upon the Order of a Drinking Water Officer advising that the Notice has been amended or may be rescinded.

For further information, please contact the CRD’s Environmental Services Department at 1-800-665-1636 or 250-392-3351 or Interior Health Authority at 250-395-7676.
