Interior Health launches incredibly helpful water advisory map

With so many water quality advisories and boil water notices in effect, in can get a little confusing.

“Is my water okay to drink,” is a comment question you’ll hear around the office or chatting with friends these days.

This makes it the perfect time for Interior Health (IH) to launch its new real-time, interactive water advisory map, which covers the entire IH region.

Not only can you find out whether your area has a water quality advisory or boil water notice, but you can also learn more about IH water suppliers, types of advisories and the reasons for them.

“Not everyone across IH has peace of mind that the water that comes out of their tap is safe. With this map, individuals are provided accessible and up-to-date information on their water quality,” says Dr. Trevor Corneil, chief medical health officer at IH.

“If there’s an advisory on their system, they can make informed decisions related to possible health risks. This level of understanding is also important, as local communities discuss future investments in their public and private water systems.”

The map, which can be accessed by clicking this link, is a product of extensive stakeholder engagement and the June 2017 report, “Drinking Water in Interior Health.”
