A boil water notice is effective immediately for 108 Mile Ranch.
The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) issued the Boil Water Notice because of a contamination of the system with Total Coliforms and E.Coli.
According to a release:
“All users of the 108 Water System are asked to use hand sanitizer after washing hands and to boil water for a minimum of one minute before: Drinking (or use an alternate, safe source of water), cooking (if not boiled), brushing teeth, washing dishes, washing fruits and vegetables to be eaten raw, watering animals.”
Alternatively, residents can use bottled water.
The Cariboo Regional District has contacted Interior Health to request their cooperation in investigating this matter.
