Effective immediately, Monday, July 31, 2017, the Ellison Boil Water Notice 
has been DOWNGRADED to a Water Quality Advisory

 

In consultation with Interior Health Authority (IH), the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) has downgraded the Ellison Boil Water Notice issued on March 10, 2017 to a Water Quality Advisory (WQA). This WQA applies to approximately 175 rural Ellison properties.  The affected area includes all properties serviced by GEID which are located east of Old Vernon Road, including all areas north of Anderson Road.  This also includes the Country Rhodes and Country View Estates Stratas. 

An ongoing WQA has been in place for those properties serviced by GEID located at 4451 to 4563 Postill Drive, 5981 Old Vernon Road, Country Rhodes Strata at 6100 Old Vernon Road, Country View Estates at 6400 Spencer Road, Dry Valley Road and Gale Road. 

Any properties under a WQA have water that is considered FAIR due to elevated turbidity (cloudiness in the water). For FAIR ratings, IHA recommends that children (0-12yrs), the elderly (65+yrs) and people with weakened immune systems boil their water for one minute or seek a safe alternative. See www.glenmoreellison.com for more detailed information. 

Owners of public facilities must post Water Quality Advisories at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the WQA.

Please be advised that ongoing monitoring and disinfection is being maintained throughout the GEID distribution system.
