Enderby boil water over

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the city had rescinded a boil water advisory

Enderby residents are celebrating with a glass of water.

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the city had rescinded a boil water advisory.

“It’s good news,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

The boil water advisory was initiated May 5 because of high turbidity on the Shuswap River.

Also creating a challenge was the inability to use a water main because of a break in April.

A temporary water line was installed Friday and a mandatory conservation advisory and state of emergency were lifted.

“The temporary line is performing as designed and we’re thrilled and relieved,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer.

Bengtson admits the community has struggled since May 5, but there was a resiliency among residents.

“We’re back to normal. Normal never felt so good,” he said.

The next focus will be the permanent repair of the water pipe that broke in April.
