Boil water noticed issued for Woodbury Water System

RDCK issued the boil water notice for the area Friday, as a result of unsafe levels of coliform bacteria in water samples.

Users of the Woodbury Water System are being advised to boil their drinking water until further notice.

Woodbury Village is located along Highway 3A just north of Ainsworth Hot Springs and south of Kaslo. Just over 40 homes rely on the Woodbury Water System for household water.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay issued the boil water notice for the area Friday, as a result of unsafe levels of coliform bacteria in water samples.

All household water intended for consumption — including water used for washing vegetables or brushing teeth — should be boiled for one minute before use.

The public will be notified when the water quality has improved.
