Water Outage and Boil Water Advisory Effective Immediately

Jun 09, 2022

UPDATE: June 10, 18:00

We're pleased to announce water service has been restored to the Canadian Lakeview Estates community. Some cloudiness and fluctuations in pressure may occur as the system returns to normal, but this will resolve itself over the course of the next few hours.

Please remember, the Boil Water Advisory is in effect until testing has confirmed that water is safe to drink. We will advise residents at that time. More information on precautions during a Boil Water Advisory can be found below or on our Water Quality page.

Once again, we regret this disruption in service, and thank you for your understanding and patience.

UPDATE: June 10, 16:30

Repairs to the watermain have been completed, and pressure testing is being done to ensure there are no leaks. Once these tests are complete, our operators will begin filling the reservoir, and water can then be restored to customers. We will provide a further update on timing.

During this time, we would like to request that customers avoid all non-essential uses of water, such as irrigation, as this will allow the reservoir to fill faster. 

UPDATE: June 10, 06:00

Regrettably, crews were unsuccessful in their attempts late last night to repair the damaged watermain and restore service. Crews will reassess the situation this morning, and we will update customers once we have more information.

Potable water is available from a tanker truck located at the Deer Park pullout on Tronson Road.

We thank you for your patience.

UPDATE: June 09, 17:00

Our crews are working to restore water service, with repairs expected to be completed in the next 3-4 hours. An Alpine Water Tanker is on site for customers wanting to fill containers.

Please remember that even after water is restored, the Boil Water Advisory is in effect as a precautionary measure until testing confirms water is safe to drink.

We would like to notify Canadian Lakeview Estates residents that a Boil Water Advisory is now in place.

This is the result of a watermain break caused by a private contractor drilling holes on a home construction site. Corix was not contacted before this work was started, and the contractor will be held responsible.

Our crews are working to make the necessary repairs, and you may experience low water pressure or a full outage. As required by the Interior Health Authority, we are issuing this advisory until testing confirms that water is safe to drink. This is a precautionary requirement whenever major work is done on a water system, as the possibility of contaminants entering the system exists.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work to maintain the safety and reliability of your water system.

Precautions During a Boil Water Advisory

During a Boil Water Advisory, tap water used for the following purposes should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one (1) minute prior to use.

  • Drinking and ice cubes
  • Liquids or food (e.g. tea or soup) that will not be boiled for at least one (1) minute
  • Washing fruits and vegetables being eaten raw
  • Brushing teeth or cleaning dental and medical appliances
  • Preparing baby food and infant formula
  • Bathing infants

Adults, adolescents, and older children may shower, bathe, or wash using tap water, but should avoid swallowing water. It’s recommended to sponge bathe infants if using tap water. Tap water may be used for dishes washed by machine but add bleach to water used for dishes washed by hand. Water used for other household purposes does not need to be boiled.

This Advisory will be rescinded once the water has been demonstrated safe to drink. Please check this News & Notices page for updates.
