VERNON - A two-month long boil water notice has finally been rescinded in Vernon after a series of tests.

Greater Vernon Water issued a boil water notice for residents on Commanage Crescent, Allan Brooks Way, Mission Road (which includes the long-term care facility Noric House) on Nov. 23 when they discovered a heavy bacetrial presence.

The reservoir was disinfected and the water was routinely tested to make sure it was fit for human consumption.

Today, Jan. 29, Greater Vernon Water announced it's rescinding the boil water notice due to positive water quality tests. If you live in the area, you no longer have to boil your water before drinking it.
