Boil water notice for South Shuswap water system lifted

Two recent tests showed satisfactory results

The water from the Cedar Heights Water System is safe to drink again without boiling.

A boil water notice was issued when water quality tests detected a high bacterial count in the water. The system, located five kilometres east of Sorrento in Electoral Area C, draws water from Shuswap Lake and treats it using chlorine and ultraviolet light.
