Crofton under an immediate boil water advisory
Crofton’s boil water advisory and Stage 3 water restrictions will remain in effect over the Canada Day long weekend.
Catalyst is working on repairing the damaged waterline.
The Stage 3 water restrictions are temporarily required to help conserve water until the watermain leak is repaired.
A boil water advisory is in effect for the community of Crofton.
That’s after a leak was detected in the supply line that brings water from the Cowichan River to the Crofton Mill.
The Municipality of North Cowichan gets water for the community of Crofton from the Crofton Mill treatment facility.
Staff are preparing to move Crofton to an alternate source of water, to ensure that the community of Crofton has an uninterupted water supply while repairs are taking place.
But as a result, a boil water advisory is in place for Crofton starting immediately.
Stage 3 Watering Restrictions are also now in effect for Crofton, and will remain in effect until further notice.
During Stage 3 sprinkling is not permitted.
