The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD), in conjunction with Interior Health, has issued a Water Quality Advisory for the Scotch Creek Lee Creek Fire Hall and Community Hall effective August 11, 2023.
The hall is located at 3852 Squilax-Anglemont Road, Scotch Creek.
This Water Quality Advisory affects the Fire Hall Water System only. It does not affect the larger community of Scotch Creek in Electoral Area F.
The Water Quality Advisory has been issued due to higher than acceptable levels of bacteria in recent water samples.
As a result, a Water Quality Advisory has been issued for all users of the water system until further notice.
The CSRD and Interior Health advise that until further notice, those with weakened immune systems or those wishing additional protection are advised to:
- boil their water at a rapid boil for at least one minute; or
- add two (2) drops of fresh household bleach per litre of water; or
- Use an approved alternative source of potable water (bottled water).
These directions apply to all water used for drinking, food preparation (including ice and produce) and dental hygiene.
The CSRD will inform users once the Water Quality Advisory has been removed.
For more information, contact the CSRD Utilities Department at 1-888-248-2773 or Interior Health at 250-851-7340.
