Effective immediately, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has lifted the Boil Water Notice for the 108 Mile Water System. All water system users may now resume normal water use.
Routine water samples taken on Nov. 20 were sent to the lab and reported to contain total coliform and E. coli on Nov. 22. Upon the direction of Interior Health, the CRD issued a Boil Water Notice that same day.
Subsequently, the CRD collected three additional rounds of water samples on Nov. 23, 24 and 27 to analyze the presence of contamination. All three rounds of water samples were clear. The CRD investigated the source of the bacterial contamination; however, the source remains unclear.
Construction on the 108 Mile water treatment plan continues and completion is scheduled for the end of March 2018.
