PENTICTON - Penticton residents and business owners affected by the city’s boil water advisory can quench their thirst straight from the tap again.

The boil water notice was rescinded on Feb. 5 at 2:20 p.m., following several days of daily testing and monitoring of the system that began last Sunday, when a large water main on the city’s Main Street broke in the downtown core.

The city and Interior Health are now confident the city’s water quality is safely within drinking water guidelines.

Mayor Jakubeit recognized the inconvenience the advisory had on city residents.

“We understand the advisory has been inconvenient for those  affected but water quality is very important. We appreciate the community understanding and support,” Mayor Jakubeit said.
