Boil water notice for parts of Marysville

Order should be lifted by today or Thursday, caused by mechanical failure in system

Some residents of Marysville have been under a Boil Water Notice since Monday, February 2.

All users of the Matthew Creek system (including Marysville, Kimberley Golf Course, Riverside Campground, River Bend Lane, River Bend Road, River Ridge Way, Tamarack Lane and Sunflower Drive), have been ordered to boil water until further notice.

The issue was a mechanical failure which has caused a lack of chlorine residual in the system. By Monday evening, city operations staff had restored the chlorine residual to normal levels, but were unable to rescind the Boil Water Notice until water submitted for testing was given the okay. It is expected the order will be rescinded today or Thursday.

The City will post the informaiton on its website kimberley.ca and also on their Facebook page as soon as the order is lifted.
