A month-long boil water notice for residents of Edgewood has ended.
The Regional District of Central Kootenay says it’s safe again for people to drink water and cook with water from the community’s water system.
On February 3, RDCK officails issued a Boil Water Notice for Edgewood due to a customer water leak that resulted in reduced reservoir levels and distribution system loss.
“The notice was issued as a precautionary measure for the potential of the backflow of contaminants to enter the water system due to the pressure loss,” says an RDCK release.
The water leak has been isolated and water quality tests indicate that the water quality is good, the regional government says.
“The RDCK appreciates Edgewood water users’ cooperation and patience during this time and apologizes for the inconvenience experienced,” it says.
Edgewood is about 75 km south of Nakusp on the Arrow Lakes.
