This facility is currently under a Boil Water Notice.
  • Underlying Problems: Water does not meet the prescribed standard under the DWPR
  • Underlying Problems: Schedule A
  • Steps Taken to Remedy: 13/06/19: Dr. Enns, Medical Health Officer notified by BV Labs that 6 of 8 samples were positive for E.coli. Dr. Enns spoke with Devin Sullivan from Interfor to implement a BWN and give direction that an alternate safe supply of drinking water must be provided (e.g., bottled water) and signs to inform users must be posted at all points where drinking water can be obtained. 13/06/19: Spoke with Greg Honeysett, operator of the Interfor Chamiss Bay water supply system to discuss the situation and possible causes, and gave direction for corrective actions. Mr. Honeysett noted that there has been an on-going issue of low water pressure in the camp and that camp users feel the issue is occurring after the treatment & disinfection system (i.e., within the camp itself and not from the source). That is, the holding tank in the treatment room is filling up normally, but there's low pressure in the camp. As such, the raw water by-pass may have been opened in order to improve water pressure in the camp. To correct this, I recommended the function of the pressure tank in the treatment room be checked. An email with additional corrective actions was sent to Mr. Honeysett in followed up to my conversation with him. 14/06/19: Spoke with Greg Honeysett, operator of the Interfor Chamiss Bay water supply system to discuss the situation and possible causes, and gave direction for corrective actions.
