A water quality advisory issued by District of Clearwater on Friday, Aug. 24, was rescinded on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
The specific areas affected by the advisory included the water system in the Raft River area east of Hillside Road, and in the Wyndhaven area along Fawn Road, Lake Summit Road, Vern-Ann Place, and Archibald Road west of Kennedy Road.
Reason given for the advisory was that detectable coliform counts in the two areas meant was the water suspected to have become contaminated and was not safe for human consumption.
People with compromised or undeveloped immune systems were told they may wish to boil their water for at least one minute before consumption.
These would include the elderly, pregnant women, children under the age of two, people with AIDS, diabetes or kidney disease, and people being treated with immuno-suppressive medications.
Those with any questions were asked to call the District at 250-674-2257, or Public Health at 250-851-7340.
Those who received the notice were asked to share it with any neighbors who might not receive it directly.
