Water Quality Advisory issued for Fauquier Water System

The RDCK issued a Water Quality Advisory for the Fauquier Water System over the weekend.

Recent testing showed that current water quality is fair, due to increased turbidity.

Turbidity can interfere with disinfection, limiting chlorine's ability to remove or inactivate viruses, bacteria, and parasites.

While health risks are considered low, the RDCK and Interior Health recommend that children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice.
