Water Quality Advisory in effect for Kitimat

The advisory is due to increased turbidity levels in the Kitimat River

Effective June 26, the District of Kitimat water system was placed under a Water Quality Advisory.

A Water Quality Advisory is one of the three types of public notices commonly issued when there may be a noticeable change in the water quality or a manageable threat to a community’s drinking water.

The advisory is being issued in Kitimat due to elevated turbidity levels in the Kitimat River. Northern Health recommends that children, pregnant women, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems drink boiled water at this time, until the advisory has been removed.

For more information, contact the District at 250-632-8900, or visit their website.
