VERNON - Customers on Tronson Road from Kin Beach to and including Tavistock area are now, as of July 26, on a Boil Water Notice.

As a precaution, Greater Vernon Water, in conjunction with Interior Health,  warn that all customers who receive water from GVW in the area noted are on a Boil Water Notice due to poor water quality results in the water distribution system.

There has been a sample with total coliform bacteria counts within the distribution system and therefore the utility is advising customers to exercise caution when using the water. The disinfection process has been good but possible bacteria counts may be due to lower than normal re-chlorination at Tavistock Reservoir.

The utility is responding to this issue by further monitoring and analysis in the area.

This means that all customers should exercise caution when using the water for consumption and boil water for at least a minute before brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables to be eaten raw, preparing any foods, mixing baby formula or making beverages or ice.

Customers will be notified as conditions change. If you have any questions about this Boil Notice, please contact GVW at 250-550-3700 or check
