Boil Water Notice Rescinded for Edgewood Water System

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) has rescinded a BOIL WATER NOTICE for users on the Edgewood Water System. The system is located in the community of Edgewood, within RDCK Electoral Area K. Edgewood is on the west side of Lower Arrow Lake off of Highway 6 between Nakusp and Vernon.

On February 3rd, 2020 the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) issued a Boil Water Notice for users on the Edgewood Water System due to a customer water leak that resulted in reduced reservoir levels and distribution system loss. The notice was issued as a precautionary measure for the potential of the backflow of contaminants to enter the water system due to the pressure loss. The water leak has been isolated and water quality tests indicate that the water quality is good.

The RDCK appreciates Edgewood water users’ cooperation and patience during this time and apologizes for the inconvenience experienced.
