Effective immediately, the District of Lake Country in conjunction with Interior Health has DOWNGRADED the BOIL WATER NOTICE that resulted from the March 12th water system outage. The Boil Water Notice impacted customers who typically receive water from the Beaver Lake water distribution source and has been DOWNGRADED to a Water Quality Advisory. 

Recent testing and monitoring has shown no bacteria are present within the distribution network and disinfection (chlorine) levels are normal. 

Interior Health recommends that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice. For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits or vegetables or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute.
