Water Quality Advisories mean that there is a level of risk associated with consuming the drinking water but not enough to warrant a Boil Water Notice. Typically, the RDCK issues these advisories due to increased turbidity levels or low chlorine residual. The RDCK and Interior Health recommend, as a precaution, that young children, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems drink boiled water or a safe alternative.
Boil Water Notices are issued when a health risk is determined in the drinking water source. When a Boil Water Notice is issued, the RDCK and Interior Health recommend that ALL customers boil the water prior to consumption or drink a safe alternative.

The Interior Health Authority has a publication on drinking water quality called "Public Notifications: What are they and why are they issued?" Click here to read it.
