Please be advised that due to high turbidity levels in river, the TNRD is issuing a Water Quality Advisory effective immediately in the Pritchard Community Water System.
Even though the risk is considered low, persons with compromised immune systems should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, food preparation or dental hygiene as a precautionary measure. Young children, pregnant women, seniors and people suffering from a serious illness are considered immune compromised.
The acceptable boiling or disinfection method is as follows:
- Boil water at a rapid boil for at least one (1) minute.
Should someone other than the property owner occupy the residence (such as a tenant), please provide this information to them.
If you have any questions, please contact the TNRD Utility Department at 250 377-8673.
