Greater Vernon residents can start drinking out of the tap again.

As of Tuesday morning, Greater Vernon Water had rescinded the boil water notice for Vernon, Coldstream, Areas B and C, some areas of Area D and Spallumcheen, including Stepping Stones.

“Extensive water quality sampling and monitoring has shown that the water supply from Duteau Creek has returned to a good rating, allowing for this boil water notice to be rescinded,” said Renee Clark, water quality manager.

“The Kalamalka Lake water source has been turned off, therefore, all GVW customers will be receiving water from the Duteau Creek water treatment plant until the turbidity in the Kalamalka Lake water source improves.”

The boil water advisory had been initiated May 6 because of turbidity.
