City of Nelson water advisory continues
The water quality advisory for the City of Nelson is about to enter its third week.
The advisory was issued July 16 when testing showed increased turbidity and cloudiness.
As a result Interior Health recommends that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection, drink boiled water, or a safe alternative.
For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute.
Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Customers could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device.
