Water quality

POSTED: September 5, 2016 | Mayors Blog

Lately the District of Stewart has issued few times a boil water advisory.  It's strictly a precautionary measure due power outage. Without power  water pressure at our pump declined below established level. A loss in pressure can result in contamination entering the drinking water distribution system from surrounding soil and groundwater. 
To address the issue Council approve the purchase of new generator for new pump 4, to make sure that water pressure will be rebounded to acceptable levels for the remainder of the outage.  Also, Council approved a purchase of a drinking water quality test kit. 
District of Stewart drinking water undergoes  quality tests monthly to ensure that our citizens are provided with clean and safe water. People of Stewart can take pride in their drinking water - it continually meets  quality standards set out in the BC Drinking Water Protection Act and the Canadian Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality. Detailed water quality reports are available in the District office.
