Boil Water Advisory: Skana Water Service (Mayne Island)

Jul 16, 2021

Residents in the impacted area should BOIL their drinking water until further notice.

Due to elevated treated water turbidity, the Capital Regional District (CRD) in consultation with Island Health, has issued a Boil Water Advisory for the Skana Water Service Area. The Skana Water System provides drinking water to 48 residential lots located on the north side of Mayne Island in the Southern Gulf Islands Electoral Area. 

Residents in the impacted area should BOIL their drinking water until further notice.

The Boil Water Advisory will be removed when Island Health is satisfied that the drinking water does not pose a health concern and issues an ‘ALL CLEAR’ notice, at which time the customers of the Skana Water Service Area will be notified as soon as possible. During the Boil Water Advisory, household tap water may be disinfected by boiling it vigorously for 1 minute.
