Water Quality Advisory (Effective 2 p.m April 17, 2018)

posted at 11:27 a.m. April 17, 2018

Effective at 2 p.m. today (April 17, 2018) Corix Utilities Inc. and Fairmont Hot Springs Utilities Ltd. have issued a Water Quality Advisory (WQA) for Fairmont Ridge Phases 1 and 2 and The Residences at Marble Ridge within the Fairmont Hot Springs Water Distribution System. 

Please note  this WQA does not affect any other area within Fairmont Hot Springs.

  • The Water Quality Advisory is required due to a temporary shutdown for water main construction feeding the two developments. 

  • Water will be shut off at 2 p.m. for approximately 2 hours or until work is completed. 

  • The WQA will remain in place to the development until water samples can be tested and proven safe.  

  • A second notice will be issued once the Water Quality Advisory is rescinded. 

Corix Utilities  and The Interior Health Authority recommend that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice.

For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute.

It is our intent to keep the interruption of water to your residence as short as possible, but ask residents in the affected area to be prepared for the possibility of the interruption being for the full period.  We greatly appreciate your patience.  

For any questions, concerns, or more information, please call Corix at 250-341-6158.
