The District of Lake Country in conjunction with Interior Health has issued a BOIL WATER NOTICE for customers on the BEAVER LAKE SOURCE. Due to a malfunction on the automatic chlorination system, the result was a loss of disinfection.

The District of Lake Country and Interior Health recommend ALL customers in the affected area drink boiled water or a safe alternative.

Until further notice, water intended for the following uses should be boiled for one minute:

drinking washing fruits and vegetables
making beverages or ice brushing teeth
Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Customers could also choose to use bottled or distilled water.

In accordance with Interior Health requirements, owners of all public facilities must post "Boil Water Notices" at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public. (Alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off).

Crews are flushing the system and collecting additional water samples to verify water quality. A notification will be issued when water quality has improved.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time. If you have questions, please contact The District of Lake Country at 250-766-6677 or check out our website at
