September 24, 2021- The Water Quality Advisory that was issued for the District of Kitimat water system on September 22nd remains in effect until further notice.


Northern Health recommends that children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems drink boiled water at this time.


The Water Quality Advisory was issued to all users of the Kitimat Community Water System due to elevated turbidity levels in the source water – Kitimat River.


There is currently no evidence of increased risk to water users, and additional testing is being conducted to verify this as soon as possible. This advisory remains in effect until another public notice is issued. The District is working with Northern Health on this matter.
