The boil water notice issued on Monday for a small, localized area in the City has been officially rescinded by Interior Health this morning.

Public Works received confirmation late Wednesday morning (October 5) that the water samples taken on Monday October 3, 2015 are clear of any coliform bacteria.

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 were the only people affected by the boil water notice.

Those affected can expect to find notices in their doors or mailboxes from the City advising that the boil water notice has been rescinded.

“Our water utilities operators were quick to notify the public and Interior Health of the potential water quality issue and took all the possible steps to ensure the health and safety of our residents,” says ChrisZettel, Communications Officer for the City of Cranbrook.

The City of Cranbrook apologizes for any inconvenience this notice may have caused those residents affected. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
