The boil-water advisory for Chemainus has been cancelled.
The Municipality of North Cowichan said that as of 9:30 a.m. on July 4, the community’s water is safe to drink for all domestic purposes.
The advisory was put in place as a precautionary measure due to turbidity levels that were slightly elevated following the recent switch from the Chemainus Wells water source to the Banon Creek surface water source.
Turbidity levels in the Banon Creek supply have now returned to normal levels and Island Health confirms that this precautionary measure is no longer necessary at this time.
Signage is being posted around Chemainus to inform residents that the advisory is lifted.
