A boil water notice remains in effect Wednesday for a very localized area of the City of Cranbrook, after Public Works water crews discovered a leaking sanitary sewer main Sunday evening.

Public Works is expecting to get the results of the first round of water sample test results later today from an independent lab in Victoria. Interior Health continues to monitor the situation closely in conjunction with Public Works water crews.

The boil water notice will remain in effect until lifted by Interior Health.

Residents living on Anderson Crescent and 21st Avenue South, between 2nd Street South and 2nd Street North including the apartment buildings adjacent to Victoria Avenue and 2nd Street North are the only people affected by the boil water notice.

All other residents on municipal water are not affected by this notice.

Those residents affected by this boil water notice MUST continue to boil their water for at least one (1) minute or use an alternate, safe source of water until further notice.

This includes all water use for brushing teeth, drinking, bathing, and washing fruits and vegetables and for cleaning.
