Boil Water Notice Rescinded for the Lister Water System

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is pleased to announce that effective immediately the BOIL WATER NOTICE issuedfor users on the Lister Water System has been rescinded.

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020 a   BOIL WATER NOTICE was issued due to depleted reservoir levels resulting from an extended power outage. This caused depressurization in the distribution system and created potential for the backflow of contaminants to enter the water system.

Reservoir levels have replenished and water quality tests indicate that the water quality is good.

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