Riondel's water quality is once again rated as good.

Riondel water advisory lifted

The Regional District of Central Kootenay has rescinded a water quality advisory on the Riondel water system.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay has rescinded a water quality advisory on the Riondel water system.

The advisory was reissued on September 11 due to a sample result indicating the presence of small levels of total coliforms. Subsequently, there were some moderate turbidity readings within the water system.

Sample results over the last several weeks show that the current water quality is good and within Canadian drinking water quality guidelines.

The Riondel water system derives source water from Hendryx and Indian Creeks. As with all surface sources, these creeks are susceptible to contamination. Both supply areas are designated community watersheds. This system was first developed to service the Bluebell mine site before it was converted to an RDCK service in 1972.
