After more than two months, some Mabel Lake residents can finally turn their taps back on.

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) is informing Mabel Lake Water Utility customers that the Water Quality Advisory issued on May 21, has been rescinded.

The RDNO has been actively monitoring the water quality and all bacterial tests have been clear. The water from the Mabel Lake Water Utility is rated as good.

A good rating means the water is safe to drink for all customers with the exception of those customers with weakened immune systems.

Customers with weakened immune systems should ask their doctor or specialist whether they need to take extra precautions. The following Health Link BC provides further information: http://www.healthlinkbc.ca/healthfiles/hfile56.stm – E46E2.
