The boil water advisory, in effect for users of the Chemainus water system, will stay in effect until further notice.
According to the North Cowichan Municipality, the boil water advisory is a precautionary measure in response to turbidity levels that could pose a risk to public health.
Chemainus water users should boil their water for at least one minute before drinking, cooking, or brushing teeth with it.
It is still safe to wash clothes and bathe in the water without boiling it.
This boil water advisory has been in place since Saturday and now the Municipality says it will provide an update to the situation again this Friday.
