Facility Information:
Facility Type:  301-10000 Connections
Current Hazard Rating:   Moderate

This facility is currently under a Water Quality Advisory

     Underlying Problems: Previously a Boil Water Notice (BWN) was in place because of the following: High rain fall has resulted in an increase in source turbidity. Confirmed by laboratory that turbidity has increased to 10.3NTU. This has been downgraded to a WQA due to improvement in water quality conditions.
     Steps Taken to Remedy: Activated emergency response. Based on a turbidity flow chart that was created for the Community the BWN has been downgraded to a WQA. Turbidity is now less than 4 NTU consistently and trending down. City of Prince Rupert will create notification and ensure distribution to the public in a manner acceptable to the Environmental Health Officer
     Corrective Actions Remaining: - Institute and communicate Water Quality Advisory to the public. - Monitor turbidity regularly throughout the day to monitor changes in turbidity levels - Continue to monitor chlorine concentrations and adjust accodingly, as reasonable, in an attempt to maintain 0.2ppm at the end of the distribution line. Do not exceed 5.0ppm at the start of the distribution system. - Test for coliforms and E.coli 3 times per week. Increasing the frequency in this way will allow for more immediate detection of any health risks present in the system to allow operators and the EHO to quickly respond to those risks. Once turbidity is trending down the advisory will be reassessed in line with the City of Prince Ruperts Turbidity Flow Chart.
