Town officials say residual chlorine will remain in the system over

the next 2-3 weeks as a result of disinfection.

The town’s water system was flagged by Interior Health for high bacteria levels stemming from maintenance activities.

The high bacteria levels did not originate from groundwater, but were believed to be connected to somewhere in the distribution system.

On May 31, the district issued a public notice, telling residents the water distribution system would be undergoing temporary chlorination due to maintenance conducted during the previous month.
