ENDERBY - Enderby is no longer under a boil water advisory.

The advisory was lifted for customers on both sides of the bridge, and the Splatsin and the Gunter-Ellison Service Extension as of 2 p.m. today, May 15.

Tests of the water came back negative for bacteria, according to a media release. In consultation with the Interior Health Authority the City has decided to lift the advisory.

The mandatory water conservation order and State of Local Emergency was lifted Friday, May 12. They were issued May 5 after high water levels caused issues for the town’s water system.

A temporary line over the Bawtree Bridge restored access to back up water sources.
