RESOLVED: Boil Water Advisory - Highland Water Service Salt Spring Island

Jan 07, 2020 (updated Jan 11, 2020, 5:07pm)

In consultation with Island Health, the boil water advisory has been lifted as of Saturday January 11, 2020.

The boil water advisory is now rescinded for the Highland part of the Highland-Fernwood water service on Salt Spring Island (click here for map).

The boil water advisory was issued in consultation with Island Health as a result of a water main break and subsequent repairs that occurred on January 7, 2020, as well as water main repairs that took place on January 9, 2020. In both cases the water distribution system was partially or fully depressurized in the Highlands part of the service.

Watermain flushing and bacteriological testing has been conducted and based on the results, Island Health has approved an ‘ALL CLEAR’ notice.
