“The Township is committed to providing quality water and will continue to monitor and complete testing on the system while working with Interior Health to protect the health of our users,” the township said in a Friday media release.

Since the boil water advisory was first directed by Interior Health, the township has been working wit hits engineers, water specialists and the health authority to narrow in on the source of the contamination and resolve the issue.

The township received word from Interior Health that the advisory can be lifted as of Sept. 8.

“Thank you to the residents and businesses who were impacted by this boil water advisory for your patience,” the township said.
