Summerland’s boil water notice is still in effect as of Tuesday, June 1, with around 1,005 properties affected.
The notice was issued on Friday, May 28 as the result of a watermain break at Victoria Road South and Simpson Road.
Municipal staff are working with Interior Health to have the notice lifted and water samples from various sampling points are being sent for testing and approval.
However, a statement from the municipality said the notice is expected to be in effect for at least a few more days.
Until the notice is lifted, Interior Health and the municipality recommend all residents affected use water that has come to a rolling boil for one minute, or use a safe alternative. This includes water for food preparation, teeth brushing and any consumption of water.
Cancelled signs will be placed on the boil water notice sandwich boards once the notice is lifted, and notifications will be placed on the municipality’s Facebook page.
