KITIMAT, BC – Effective today, September 22, 2021, the District of Kitimat water system is under a Water Quality Advisory. Northern Health recommends that children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems drink boiled water at this time.

All owners of public premises must make patrons aware of this Water Quality Advisory.

A Water Quality Advisory is being 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is issued upon request or order of a Drinking Water Officer advising that the advisory has been amended or may be rescinded. The District is working with Northern Health on this matter.
