Water samples from the affected area were taken January 13, 14 and 18 and couriered to a lab.

“All samples tested were potable and safe to consume,” public works manager Pat Mahood said.

In consultation with Interior Health, the city is lifting the boil water advisory effective immediately, he added.

Mahood said city crews trucked 300,000 litres of water to the reservoir to replenish the supply and delivered approximately 80 flats of water to customers who had no water.
