BOIL WATER ADVISORY
Interior Health has issued an indefinite Boil Drinking Water Advisory due to a higher than acceptable level of total coliforms in the water. All water to be consumed must be brought to a full rolling boil for at least one minute.
BLEACHING AND FLUSHING
Periodically you will be notified that the distribution lines will be disinfected and flushed out. This procedure can result in water being drawn out of homes, and if hot water tanks empty of water but the heating element remains on, the element could be damaged or burn out. Turning off the water at the main valve is the best way to prevent back siphoning into the MLWUC distribution lines and to prevent damage to your water tank. If for some reason you cannot turn off the main valve, you should shut off the hot water tank valve or at the very least, turn off the power to your hot water tank by switching off the breaker.
