Water quality advisory is rescinded: City
The City giveth and the City taketh away.
A water quality advisory that went into effect June 8 has now been rescinded.
In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the City of Nelson has rescinded the water quality advisory that was issued on June 8.
“Throughout the period of the advisory, other than some cloudiness, the water tests have been good,” the City’s Public Works department said in a news release.
Turbidity — and the risk of gastrointestinal illness — had risen in the water supply lines feeding Nelson homes, prompting the water quality advisory to be issued by the City and the IHA.
Heavy spring rains and a high snow melt had resulted in increased turbidity or cloudiness, testing had shown.
