DRINKING WATER SYSTEM MAINTENANCE ADVISORY

 

 

October 6, 2017

 

The Corporation of the Village of Alert Bay (the Village) operates the water supply system that provides drinking water to Village residents, businesses, and visitors. Water quality in the system is monitored for bacteriological quality on a monthly basis by way of water samples obtained throughout the community, and results are reviewed by the Village and Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA).

On October 6, 2017 the Village was notified by VIHA that total coliforms were detected in the drinking water distribution system. In response, VIHA has directed the Village to perform a disinfection of the Village’s water supply with chlorine, ensuring that chlorine levels remain below the maximum threshold allowable for human consumption.

The Village will chlorinate the water supply on Tuesday October 10th, 2017. Water system users may notice the smell or taste of chlorine. To assist in this process, the Village asks that residents draw water through their households during this time to help the chlorine come into contact with all parts of the distribution system. Turbidity (hazy water) may occur and is normal during this process.

We provide the following cautions:

•             Chlorine kills fish. Residents with aquariums and fish ponds should not use chlorinated water to replenish tanks or ponds.

•             Chlorine destroys reverse osmosis (RO) membranes. Users of RO membranes should not introduce chlorinated water to RO systems.

•             Chlorine renders hemodialysis ineffective. Kidney dialysis patients should not use chlorinated water in dialysis machines.

Thank you,

The Corporation of the Village of Alert Bay

For further information, contact VIHA Health Protection Office: 250-902-6071
