A boil water advisory has been tweeted by the JdF Emergency Program for those using water from the Wilderness Mountain Water System, on Mount Matheson, East Sooke. Those affected should boil water for a minimum of one minute.
According to the Vancouver Island Health Authority page, the underlying problem is with disinfection and the current hazard rating is low. As for corrective action, the VIHA website reads, “BWA door to door delivery conducted and CRD website was updated. Repairs are ongoing and chlorination may be operational soon again (by Oct 12, 2016). Once reinstated, the system will be flushed to remove the compromised water from the pipes and then sampled to verify the safety of the water.”
