Water Samples taken from the Cottonwood Water System have indicated an unacceptable level of bacteria.  Interior Health requires a BOIL WATER NOTICE be issued for users of the water system.

The CSRD and Interior Health advise that until further notice, all users of the water system are warned to:

  • boil their water at a rapid boil for at least one minute; or
  • add two (2) drops of fresh household bleach per litre of water; or
  • Use an approved alternative source of potable water (bottled water)

These directions apply to all water used for drinking, food preparation (including ice and produce) and dental hygiene.
