Notice of Water Quality Advisory for Nelson

WATER QUALITY ADVISORY

Monday, June 1, 2020

The City of Nelson, in consultation with the Interior Health Authority, is issuing a WATER QUALITY ADVISORY for the City of Nelson. Ongoing testing indicates that the current water quality in the Nelson drinking water supply is FAIR due to recent spring run-off events, which have resulted in increased turbidity or cloudiness in the drinking water.

Interior Health recommends that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection, drink boiled water, or a safe alternative.

For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Customers could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device.

The City of Nelson is taking additional measures to reduce risk. Interior Health has been fully involved, and the public will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time.

The City continues to monitor water quality at our source and throughout our system however, a significant amount of high mountain snowpack remains to melt. Should water quality change, we will post any future notices on the City’s website, through social and print media, radio, and via telephone to users deemed to be at unique risk.

Questions? Please call Public Works at 250-352-8238.
