Kimberley residents are being asked to continue to boil their water for a few more days.
The boil water order came into effect last week as high water and heavy rains increased turbidity to the point that tap water in Kimberley was a murky brown. It has cleared up considerably over the weekend, but Mayor Ron McRae says it will take time for the system to get completely back to normal.
“We should be able to pull the boil water within a day or two,” he said. “City crews will then flush the system to get residual sediment out. We hope to be completely back to normal by Friday. We appreciate people’s patience.”
