Boil water notice lifted in Union Bay

The notice has been lifted as of May 27.

The Union Bay Improvement District (UBID) has lifted their boil water notice.

The notice has been lifted as of May 27.

On May 15, the new water treatment plant started providing water to all connections from the UBID. In order to lift the boil water notice, two weeks of monitoring and testing was required to be submitted to Island Health.

All drinking water quality parameters meet regulatory standards and the boil water notice is no longer a requirement.

UBID provides water via a distribution network from the Buckley Bay store / BC Ferry terminal to the end of Kilmarnock in the north end. Spindrift residents do not receive their water from UBID.

It is advised that after a boil water notice has been lifted to flush all water-using fixtures for one minute; run cold-water faucets and drinking fountains for one minute before using the water; drain and flush all ice-making machines in your refrigerator; run water softeners through a regeneration cycle; drain and refill hot water tanks set below 45 C (normal setting is 60 C) and change any pre-treatment filters (under sink style and refrigerator water filters, carbon block, activated carbon, sediment filters, etc.).
