CSRD issues boil water notice for Swansea Point.

A boil water notice has been issued for Swansea Point.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District issued a boil water notice on Wednesday, Oct. 26 for residents who use the Swansea Point Firehall.

Effective immediately, the notice states water samples from the firehall water source show an “unacceptable” level of bacteria, necessitating the warning under Interior Health guidelines.

Until further notice, affected Swansea Point residents are warned to boil their water for at least one minute prior to consumption. Alternatively, two drops of fresh household bleach can be added to one litre of water (approximately nine drops per gallon), and let stand in a refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before use. Or else use bottled water.

These directions apply to all water used for drinking, food preparation and dental hygiene.

An update on the notice will be provided as information comes available.
