Bacteria Concerns Lead To Boil Water Advisory At Swansea Point

The CSRD has issued a boil water advisory for those on the Swansea Point Fire Hall Water System.

Water samples from the area South of Sicamous show unacceptable levels of bacteria, resulting in this advisory.

The District says that those on that system are asked to boil their water for at least one minute, or use bottled water.

It also says they can add small amounts of bleach to their water, with directions available on the CSRD's website.

The CSRD had not responded to calls for comment on this issue by our Thursday deadline.
