The Boil Water Notice for the MacArthur Heights/ Reedman Heights Water System issued on July 20, 2022 has been rescinded.

Water samples which were taken from the system on July 21 and July 25 have come back with satisfactory results and Interior Health has confirmed the Boil Water Notice can be lifted for all users of the system.

The CSRD thanks residents for their patience.

Users of the MacArthur Heights/Reedman Heights Water System are advised that a BOIL WATER NOTICE has been placed on the system effective July 20, 2022. 

The water system is located on Eagle Bay Road in Electoral Area C (South Shuswap). 

The notice has been issued due to higher than acceptable levels of bacteria in recent water samples.

Bacteria levels can be increased in surface water sources due to seasonal weather changes causing excessive surface runoff, flooding or lake turnover. 

As a result, a BOIL WATER NOTICE has been issued for all users of the water system until further notice.

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.

The CSRD will inform users once the BOIL WATER NOTICE has been removed.

For more information, contact the CSRD Utilities Department at 1.888.248.2773 or Interior Health at 250.851.7340.
