-The following notice comes from Rory Beise, Kemp Lake Waterworks
Boil Water Update Saturday July 30
We received the following message from Rory Beise of Vancouver Island Health Authority late yesterday afternoon.
Of the four samples KLWD submitted three were clean and one sample contained a single Total Coliform count, however this office will remove the Boil Water Advisory on the following conditions:
- A minimum free residual chlorine level of 0.2ppm is maintained and monitored throughout out the distribution system.
- The raw water turbidity is monitored throughout the weekend.
- All four sample sites are resampled and submitted to the laboratory Tuesday (August 2, 2016).
An update will be provided to Rory Beise on Tuesday with the residual chlorine levels and turbidity, and should confirm the resampling was completed.
After careful consideration, we decided to get through the weekend and next set of tests before officially lifting the boil advisory. It was felt that was better than lifting the advisory now and then having to re-impose it if there was any issue with the tests next week.
Thank you for your continued co-operation and we are looking forward to a final resolution in the near future.
